CURRENT STUDENTS

Student Orientation

Student Orientation, a programme that is required for all new and transfer students, will help you prepare for your transition into tertiary education as well as the expectations, challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Students are highly encouraged to attend the Student Orientation programme so that you will be welcomed and introduced to NAA, learn about University resources and processes, and briefed on the Student Handbook. You will also receive an orientation pack comprising useful documents.


Academic and Professional Counseling

Students enrolled in NAA may seek academic counselling services from the University via NAA. Students may request for assistance to schedule a consultation with the appropriate academic staff at the University to discuss and address any academic concerns. Where cases are deemed to require more than academic advice, professional counselling services are available to all students. If a student wishes to speak to a counsellor, an appointment can be made for him/her via the Student Services Department. Please contact Student Services Team at studentservices@naa.edu.sg.


Student Development Workshops

The Student Services Department at NAA works hand in hand with the University and Professional Training Providers to bring to our students useful workshops on academic writing and study skills that will allow you to plan and carry out your coursework and assessments effectively, allowing you to realise your potential and to achieve academic success on your course during your time at NAA.


Student-Staff Dialogue (SSD)

Student representatives (SRs) are nominated from the student body to participate in SSD Sessions. The SRs will provide feedback or suggestions received from their classmates and discuss issues of concern with our NAA Management team. These sessions will be held 2- 3 times a year. Student representatives play an important role in contributing towards understanding and improving student experiences.


NAA is committed to delivering high quality and distinct learning, teaching and research experiences, through achieving business excellence, desired service targets and quality assurance initiatives, which will lead to improvements to our overall systems and processes.


Teacher-Student Ratio

At Ngee Ann Academy we are committed to providing a quality learning environment. In order to provide necessary academic support and to maximise the student learning experience,  we maintain a well-balanced teacher-student ratio:
Tutorial and workshops – 1:50
Clinical Skills laboratory –  1:20
Lecture –  1:100


Mobile Phone Policy

It is the policy of NAA that mobile phones are to be switched to “silent” mode before a class commences. This will ensure a quality teaching environment for all students. Any student who fails to comply with this policy and whose phone interrupts the class will be asked to leave the class immediately by the lecturer/tutor.


Grievance & Dispute Resolution Policy

NAA has a closed-loop Dispute Resolution Policy that is aligned with the Dispute Resolution stipulated by CPE. NAA welcomes feedback and complaints from students, parents and guardians, staff, partner organisations, recruitment agents and the public at large.

NAA maintains the Dispute Resolution Policy as a managed platform for students to provide valuable feedback on their experience with NAA. The various ways of providing feedback is communicated to the students via the Student Orientation, Student Handbook and NAA website.

It is in NAA’s policy that each feedback is appropriately acknowledged and addressed. NAA is committed to ensuring that a complaint/grievance is resolved within twenty-one (21) working days upon receiving the complaint/grievance.

Where students are not satisfied with the outcome from NAA’s internal grievance process, they can seek redress via the CPE Mediation-Arbitration Scheme here. For assistance on Dispute Resolution, please approach the Student Services Team or email to studentservices@naa.edu.sg.
