Student Support Services
At City College, our vision of our students goes beyond academic success. Thus, beyond providing quality education, City College has in place various programmes and support services for its students.
All students partake in the orientation programme where they are introduced to their teachers, tour the premises, and engage in ice-breaker games to get to know their fellow classmates better. Throughout the academic year, other programmes and support services are provided.
The list of services includes but is not limited to:
(a) Optional Medical Insurance coverage for hospitalization and related medical treatment for the entire course duration.
(b) Orientation programme for all newly-enrolled students.

(d) National Service Deferment Services for male students attending full-time course.

(f) Registration for GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations with Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB).

(k) Student Testimonials
(l) Annual Voting awards: Teacher of the Year & Mentor of the Year
To help our newly-enrolled students in their transition to City College, we will be conducting an orientation programme in the first week of the Academic Year.
This orientation programme aims to provide all information regarding our support services as we seek to provide a conducive environment for effective learning. Activities are incorporated into the orientation programme to create a fun and interesting atmosphere. Students can look forward to a fun-filled Orientation programme as they embark on a new journey with City College!
City College conducts our own EduFair to provide tertiary course guidance to our students after the release of O-Level results. This enables them to be equipped with the right information to choose a suitable tertiary course. Graduates are also advised on their career path to understand the type of academic courses that they need to undergo to match their career requirement.
Pre-Course counselling services are provided to students prior to their enrolment to understand the student’s standpoint and determine how City College is able to empower them in pursuing their goals and dreams.
Counseling services are also provided to students during their course of study at City College. Ms. Selena See, the school counsellor, has a Masters of Social Science in Counselling from the University of South Australia.
Students are assigned to a mentor who will meet up with them throughout the course of their study at City College. The mentorship sessions are designed to provide an environment for students to ask their mentors on any matters pertaining to life in general.
Students can opt for insurance coverage throughout their course of study at City College.
Contact our Student Affairs Officer for more information.
In addition to information on notice boards, City College also provides a SMS announcement service where we can send announcements, important notices or other urgent matters to both parents and students through SMS. This allows an immediate and effective communication channel to supplement other more traditional means of communication with both parents and students.
