The ADM Website is your primary source for information on the
curriculum, registration and advisement and is meant to complement the
University’s existing academic policies, which may be found at: http://www.ntu.edu.sg/oas/Pages/StudentAcademicMatters.aspx
advisement on curriculum matters is handled by the faculty of the School. Each
student will be assigned a faculty mentor (advisor) who will be your primary
point of contact on curriculum advisement. You will be notified of your faculty
mentor through email.
Academic advisement at ADM takes place during
November and April for the subsequent terms. The academic advisement process usually
begins with a meeting between each student and their mentor or a relevant
faculty member, who recommend required and elective courses. You may make an
appointment with your faculty advisor to discuss course schedules, matters in
reference to your degree plans and any other aspect of the academic programmes
offered by the School.
Each semester, there will be announced times that are set aside for academic
advisement by faculty members in your major area. You are expected to attend
these meetings to resolve any questions about your progress towards graduation.
Furthermore, faculty have regular consultation hours throughout the semester
(posted on office doors) that you should make use of, if and when you have any
concerns with regards to specific courses or projects.
Part of the experience of a university education is learning to manage the
responsibilities of your degree and balance the demands of your workload and
life. It is important that you know when to ask for and seek help.
Ensure that you approach faculty members as soon as possible, if you feel that
you are beginning to have difficulties and do not ignore any problems that
arise until such time that the worst case scenario seems unavoidable. Faculty
will be far more inclined to help you if you seek their advice well before the
due-date for your work has fallen, rather than after it has passed. You may
schedule an appointment with the School’s Assistant Director (Undergraduate
Programmes) or Associate Chair (Academic), for additional advisement.
As students may sometimes have other
personal difficulties, the College of HASS has appointed a Pastoral Care
Manager to provide pastoral care and support to students. Your
faculty mentor may refer you to the Pastoral Care Manager for your personal
difficulties. The Pastoral Care Manager
is usually at ADM on Tuesdays.

The University also maintains an excellent resource to help you to
manage your stress and adjust to university life. The University Wellbeing Centre
provides free, confidential and professional counselling to students and offers
individual and group programmes as well as open talks for students. Its various
services can provide new perspectives on personal, study, or work-related
concerns and help you to develop strategies to deal with these.

The ADM Library is located on Level 1 of the main ADM building in a state-of-the-art facility open to all members of the University, but not the general public. While relatively new, the collections of the Library are growing rapidly to cover existing and evolving knowledge in the fields of art, design and media. The importance of the Library within the School reflects the conviction that published material, whether printed or in the form of electronic media, is superior in quality to other, unscrutinised sources, and students are encouraged to take advantage of this resource in their creative and academic practice.
The ADM Library has over 4,000 volumes, covering the rapidly evolving disciplines in art, design and media. The growing collection also includes reference materials, monographs, artists’ books, exhibition catalogues, production formats, animation guidebooks and design catalogues.
The Library subscribes to over 100 periodicals, covering many aspects of the School’s curriculum and providing the core materials for the undergraduate and future postgraduate courses in media, film, animation, design and art.
An expanding collection of DVDs, VCDs, audio and music CDs, video and audio cassettes, and tapes are located in the Library. Most are available on open-access shelving. AV material is loaned out to faculty members, graduate students and NTU staff. Students are able to view material, either individually on in a group, in facilities within the Library.
Users are able to check out library material themselves through the automated check-out machines and return the books via the return boxes at the Library entrance, during opening hours. Special material such as AV and material on limited-loan periods are borrowed and returned at the loan counter. The ADM collection is largely an open collection. However, certain categories of material are designated as for reference only or restricted use. These include: the RBR collection (circulated for two hours only), referenced books, restricted books and AV materials.
