New Graduate Student Orientation

New Graduate Student Orientation is Mandatory in GCTU. Our focus for orientation is to help students excel in studies. Orientation content is developed with this goal in mind. Postgraduate studies at GCTU is a step ahead of the traditional postgraduate studies around. Apart from its blended learning systems, and online learning management system, the school is very keen on excellent academic writing.  Though some of our courses were developed with industry, all write ups are subjected to vigorous academic standards.

At the Graduate School, lectures begin right after orientation. It is therefore imperative for all admitted students to understand the way things get done at GCTU Graduate School. Top Management always look forward to orientation at the Graduate School to share their experiences with students and give all relevant information to help students excel in their studies.

International students get the opportunity to get answers for questions that helps them to transition smoothly GTUC community. Campus social and academic resource information is an important component of the programme.
