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.
The concept of student-centeredness is the foundation of SCC’ efforts to provide services
that employ a developmental perspective to focus on students’ interests and integrate
their input. SCC’ emphasizes teaching and learning by aspiring not only to provide
a quality service, but also to assist students to develop and refine life-long skills.
SCC also adopts an intervention delivery model that acknowledges students as partners
and active collaborators in the counseling process.
