                   2.3.5 Academic Advisors
                   Each  student  is  assigned  an  academic  advisor  from  day  one  of  joining  the  Program.  The
                   academic advisor is a faculty member in the academic department in which the student is
                   enrolled. The role of the advisor is to assist the advisee in preparing course schedule during
                   registration, support and guide him/her during his/her University studies, monitors his/her
                   academic progress, and offers him/her counselling on any academic difficulties or problems
                   he/she may experience.
                   2.3.6 Study Plans

                   The study plan is considered to be the road map for students to progress smoothly in their
                   studies towards their graduation.  Each student will follow the defined study plan of her/his
                   degree  and  the  student’s  academic  advisor  would  help  him/her  prepare  a  schedule  in
                   accordance with that study plan. The approval of the advisor is required before a student
                   could register and finalise his/her schedule.  In case of the online registration, the student is
                   required to consult his/her advisor on the courses he/she needs to register. For a complete
                   list  of  study  plans  of  Degrees  offered  by  the  University,  the  student  is  referred  to  the
