It is an honour and a great privilege to welcome you to the Student Development and Support Services Division.

Thank you for choosing our University to shape your dreams in pursuit of your career. We are committed to providing a quality “out-of-classroom” experience embracing the holistic development of our students as espoused in our vision.

You will be introduced to a new social, cultural and academic environment. During this time of adjustment and transition into adulthood, the University is here to ensure you feel comfortable and supported throughout your academic journey.

There are a variety of services available to you that ensures your time with us is one in which you grow academically, personally and professionally. You are encouraged to participate in all the activities organised for students by various units within the Division.

The Division of Student Development and Support Services, in collaboration with other departments, provides services that ensure that your wellbeing is cared for especially in areas concerning your health, emotional and personal welfare as well as providing development and leadership opportunities.

Please make use of these services and participate in the various offerings, to assist you in unlocking your potential and realising your dreams.

Your time at WSU may be the best years you may experience; however, you are urged to do so responsibly.

As future graduates, we know that you will be equipped to be global citizens.
