NEHEMIAH GATEWAY University
Helping and empowering people to sustainably shape and determine
their lives in dignity and independence
Our students are our most valuable asset. With this in mind, N.G. University has created the Student Service Center to support student life. Before the first day of classes, all students are welcomed to N.G.University with an opening party and a tour of the campus. Newcomers are assisted in finding housing accommodations and are provided with a general orientation to student life at N.G.University.
The Student Services Center provides the following:
Counseling and Advising Services
N.G. University offers a system for students to easily access information, individual advice and counsel. During the first weeks of classes, staff from the university and N.G. Albania hold informational and advisory meetings for varying topics including: general information about N.G. University and N.G. Albania, university course catalog and general regulations, module description, and exam and practical time management and instruction. Additionally, N.G.University provides each student with an individual email address which gives him or her the possibility to access the N.G.University intranet in order to find relevant information for different modules and to easily communicate with academic staff and other students. There is also a group address that the academic staff uses in order to communicate course-wide information. The SSC also coordinates one-on-one meetings with academic advisors to meet the needs of individual students.
N.G. University offers tailored courses based upon the identified communication needs and challenges of the students. English or German language and intercultural communication courses are several that are typically offered.
