Undergraduate programs - Academic Advising Office (AAO)
Academic Advising Office (AAO) works with first year undergraduate students. AAO provides assistance in course selection and course registration, supports students with academic difficulties, provides personalized advising which considers the special needs of each student and makes referrals to relevant offices, when necessary. The students’ information and their academic performance is maintained confidential by AAO.
Academic Advisors of AAO help students in solving academic problems that students face in the process of their education, and also contribute to students’ professional development. The role of an academic advisor is to guide, provide students with necessary information and monitor the process of their academic progression. Academic advisors also help students in explaining the academic policies and procedures of NU and the degree requirements, they evaluate student progress and provide information about available resources on campus. Students have the opportunity to make an appointment to have an individual consultation and attend group sessions with their academic advisors during the academic year.
AAO also provides help of Peer Advisors to students. Peer Advisors are well-trained students of third and fourth year, who are ready to share their own experience with students, provide subject specific information and knowledge of studies at NU.

Career and Advising Center
CAC strives to provide services to aid in the professional development of our students and alumni.
Our future is the youth of this country! Career choice starts from family taken up by University and final product is dealt by an Employer. Therefore, it is important that our joint efforts and support are consistent and cooperative.

The Center establishes partnerships with internship providers and employers to help in recruiting NU students and alumni through on-campus recruitment events, companies’ presentations and field trips, etc.
The staff members of the Center want to help the students learn about their skills and interests, and articulate them confidently in resumes, cover letters, interviews; define and explore career options that they might pursue; and implement an effective strategy to achieve their desired career outcomes.
