In addition to the academic administrative staff ready to help and support students with issues regarding their studies and what courses to take, the University also employs graduate students as Teaching Assistants to provide more detailed support to students in class. Students also have access to LETUS, an online academic support system through which they can ask about teaching materials or questions to do with classes. There are also academic counseling offices and pre-enrollment workshops to ensure new students have a smooth transition into university life and study.
The academic counseling offices provide thorough support to students in their 1st year to ensure their academic studies start off in the right direction. Students in their 2nd year and above, who have undertaken a special orientation, also work as ES (Educational Supporters), and spend time in the offices to give students advice and help with the three core subjects of mathematics, physics and chemistry, the foundation of studies at TUS. Students wanting help from an ES need to apply in advance. Students can continue to use the academic counseling offices from their 2nd year.
