Five Common Myths on Academic Advising

 

 

Dear Students,

The second semester has just started, and it is time to meet with your Faculty Academic Adviser again. Don’t sit back and fall victim of a number of common myths about academic advising, advising, reach out to your FAA today.

Myth 1

Academic advising is for the student with a low GPA.

Advising is not solely for students who have difficulties in coping with their studies. Even academically outstanding students can use guidance on matters like deciding on exchange opportunities, choosing a suitable majors and minors or planning for postgraduate studies. Go and tell your FAAs about your study plan or career goals, and you may be surprised to hear your FAAs insights and opinions that you have never thought of.

Myth 2

It is better to seek advice from my peers since they can relate more to my experience.

There is no doubt that your peers like o’camp leaders or senior hallmates can provide you with useful opinions. However, their advice, like all other advice, has its limitation – it is based on their own strengths and personality. This is most likely different from yours. Additionally, while your peers are able to give you views from a student’s perspective, your FAA sees matters from another perspective. Getting advice from peers and FAAs is not substitute of one another.

Myth 3

There is no point meeting my FAA because he/she is not teaching courses in my intended major.

In the event that your assigned FAA is not from your intended major, he or she as an academic staff of your Faculty can still advise you on how to draw up your study plan, how to prepare for declaring your intended major and to give you suggestions on the requisite study skills. If there are details that he / she is not familiar with, your FAA would guide and refer you to the most appropriate person for further advice.

Myth 4

Meeting with my FAA in a formal setting is intimidating. I don’t know what to talk about…

Although meeting with your FAA might not be as fun as chatting with your friends, it does not have to be intimidating. FAAs are teachers who are used to communicating with students. Your FAA has been specifically assigned to help you adjust to the University and to guide you through your academic plans. You can raise any study-related query (e.g. how to develop a study plan, how to improve study skills, what to consider when selecting a major questions on learning opportunities such as exchange, research and internship). It is advisable to write down the questions you wish to discuss with your FAA before you meet with him/her.

Myth 5

I did not contact my FAA in the first semester, therefore I better not approach my FAA now as he / she may already have a bad impression.

The old saying is “better late than never”. Whether or not you have met with your FAA in the first semester, now that you have your first semester results and more experience with the University, it would be timely to consult your FAA on your study plan. Your FAA is there to help and guide you and to review your progress, so there is no need to feel embarrassed or nervous to contact him/her.
