Student Counseling Service

The student counseling service of University of Ruhuna provides services and programmes which promote the personal development and psychological well-being of students. It also helps to develop a conducive environment to maximize students` educational attainments. Students will have the opportunity to privately and confidentially discuss their various psychological, social and financial issues or any other difficulty they face during their university education with the student counselors and obtain advices. Students will be directed to the professional psychological counselor of the University whenever needed.

The University has appointed a Senior Student Counselor for the University and Deputy Senior Student Counselors & number of Student Counselors for each faculty to maintain student counseling activities under the guidance of Deputy Vice Chancellor. Most of the student counselors have undergone special trainings on counseling and they have been directed through a Student Counselor guide.

An external Professional Counselor has been appointed to provide services for needy students and staff and he is available in every Tuesday from 1 .00 p.m. to 3.00 p.m at the Medical Center of the University.
