MAHSA is committed to ensuring that every student is supported and has an equitable opportunity for success, regardless of their backgrounds. We recognize that we need to personalize education and ensure a strong support ecosystem for every student. Our services have transformed over the years, with new ones added on, with feedback from all stakeholders involved in the student journey.
Student Central is MAHSA’s one stop centre for students for enquiry, information and activities. MAHSA Students can contact Student Central at email@example.com or walk-in to the Student Central office located at the SPINE (2nd Floor) Humanity Building.
The one-week orientation programme allows new students to be acquainted with their seniors and be introduced to the Vice-Chancellor and the top leadership of the university. The programme is managed by the Student Representative Council (SRC) with activities and presentations by heads of departments. Orientation compulsory and is counted as part of the attendance as it help students to make the transition into university life. At the orientation, apart from establishing friendships among their peers, they learn what to expect, how to navigate successfully and where to ask for help.
Preparatory Classes are available to students who want a refresher course in some subject areas, or just want a head-start, before their semester commences. Preparatory classes are offered for all levels of studies and typically in subjects such as Basic Sciences, English, Mathematics, English and Accounting.
We believe that when a student feels supported socially and emotionally, they will in turn feel respected and accepted by their peers and lecturers. Students may drop by to the Student Central and speak to any of our licensed Counsellors on campus. Counselling sessions are kept private between the student and the counsellor.

The Mentor-Mentee support is a structured process of personal guidance through the mentor who is assigned to student at the beginning of the student journey. The Mentor who is a faculty member, will be able to provide advice, counselling and other mentorship and support in relation to academic and non-academic matters.
The objectives of the Mentor-Mentee programme are to increase student retention by helping them become more familiar with the university culture, and help them grow and develop professionally as MAHSA students. Mentors also help increase the flow of accurate and timely information through the university.
To ensure that MAHSA students will be highly sought-after by potential employers with job-ready skill sets, we have launched the MAHSA Masterclass Series as a bolt-on qualification for all students across all levels of study. This provides our students the added advantage of earning additional certifications in the relevant subject areas supplementing their prescribed curriculum hence building their essential skills for the demands of the century. Students who complete a set of Masterclasses as determined by the University will be eligible to acquire a Pearson Certificate of Assurance at the end of their academic programme.

Students are the main stakeholders and your feedback is an important source of input for continuous service quality improvement. Feedback is given through student surveys, townhall sessions and meetings with student representatives. Students are asked for their input on effective teaching, student experience, orientation experience and satisfaction levels with support service departments.
Elected student representatives are more often the first source of feedback and communication between the students and the university.
