Before going to helps, I did feel a little lost and confused as to what I was supposed to do.
I was not sure, like what sort of assistance do I need for my essay, whether an Advisor can help me with the essay?
I wish I had had something like HELPS when I was at university.
I think students can get lost in such a big university and feel a little bit anonymous.
I think HELPS is really important to all students, cause whilst they’re at UTS studying, there’s gonna be a point where they may be working on an assignment that they need to just touch base with somebody and ask a simple question like ‘am I on the right track?’
Before HELPS there’s no other place where students can present themselves and ask questions. And I think in some way HELPS can eliminate those isolation.
I do find myself is not very good at studying English, but after I attend the first drop-in session, I feel hope.
I didn’t anticipate to gain so many benefits. Every time, when I go to the drop-in session, the people are so nice.
When you arrive here, it’s difficult to find new friends because you feel alone.
But if you take some programs or a workshop with HELPS, HELPS maybe immerses you in this environment.
I’m sure all students will have some queries about their assignments, it’s very important to them to seek help.
This isn’t just for international students. It can help local students, and especially, sort of, bringing life to ideas.
So remember that while you’re at university, it’s not just about the marks, it’s really about learning and trying to get the most out of your time here.
HELPS in one word for me?
I would say supportive. Amazing. Caring. Home. Friendly.
HELPS, thank you for your passion with me.
Thank you for your help, and also thank you for opening your doors to improve my skills.
