The transferred student
Being transferred to a new institution is a very important step that can create some discomfort due to the new environment, colleagues and academic policy. We do our best to create a welcoming environment that should make you feel comfortable enough to perform well in class. You will go through a special orientation program for transferred students and be assigned a “Student Buddy”, a colleague from your group, who will explain you all the aspects of the TASTE Academy community. Our staff has an “open door“ policy, so you can contact anytime the Student Services Office and of course you can talk to the group tutor or group representative.
