The Student Counseling Center (SCC) provides individual and group counseling to students at the United Arab Emirates University. Our counselors help students explore any academic or personal problems or concerns that they may be experiencing. Some common issues that arise include adjusting to university life, time management issues, confusion about life or career goals, anxiety, depression or dealing with grief and loss. Our Counseling Services utilize a service system that emphasizes trust, respect, confidentiality, and compassion. The SCC team is committed to the well-being and betterment of our students throughout their educational years at UAEU.
Our counselors are prepared to deal with a multitude of issues or concerns and encourage students to identify personal goals and help them develop coping skills and generate solutions to current difficulties. Students may receive help for any social, emotional, educational or vocational issues.
