Students, especially freshmen, are encouraged to have frequent meetings with Academic Advisers, to better organize their curriculum and solve related problems. The final responsibility for their choices in matters of study lies with the students themselves.
The teaching staff, the administrative staff, the Laboratory Directors and the Presidents of the Departments, as well as the competent services of the Foundation cooperate and support the Academic Advisers in their work, while taking into account their information, observations, suggestions and requests, for any shortcomings, malfunctions that create problems for students and any suggestions for dealing with them.
