Student Life

 

Student Orientation

New students are invited to attend Student Orientation and Induction which provides a comprehensive introduction to the centre, its people, and its services. Students meet faculty and staff, complete admission requirements and participate in a variety of activities designed to help them have a smooth and successful transition to University.

Student Facilities

We are proud to be one of the few institutions here in the UAE offering UK qualifications as well as a proper University experience.  Sharing the site of the AURAK campus here in RAK, our students enjoy the facilities such as Student Study Area/Library, Student Common Room and Dining Area.  There are also onsite prayer facilities and ample parking.

There are on site student hostels for those studying away from home, which are beautifully furnished and available at very competitive rates.

We share the sports facilities with AURAK and this comprises of the Gymnasium, Auditorium/Sports Hall, all weather pitches and sports field.

Inter-collegiate competitions and cultural programmes take place both on/off site.

Pastoral Care

Each student is assigned a Personal Tutor who will conduct one to one and group sessions throughout the year.  The purpose of these sessions is to provide an open forum in which students can voice any concerns and get additional advice or support.  We also have an onsite Student Counselor who provides a non-specialist sign posting service for anything outside of our faculty expertise.  Please ask for help if you need it – there are plenty of people around to support you.  Please also see our Advice and Guidance pages found in the student section on the main WINC website.
