Student Development & Support

Julie McFarlane

HPCSA Registered Counsellor
SRC Advisor  

A student-centric focus is at the heart of the Student Development and Support Department. Knowing the many challenges and sacrifices involved in balancing full-time studies and life’s demands. The Department offers services that aim to maximise a positive student experience and ensure continual student wellness.

Services include anytime access to two qualified counsellors, who provide individual counselling for students experiencing emotional, learning, relational or contextual challenges. Student wellness initiatives such as workshops, Paying It Forward activities and mindfulness training help students remain physically and mentally healthy.

A credit-bearing element of student life at TSIBA is participation in the mentorship programme. Every student is allocated a trained mentor, who, through regular contact, provides the student with a wide range of experiences and opportunities.


The Student Representative Council (SRC) aims to create a vibrant student life and a sense of community among the TSIBA students, on and off campus; the student-centred culture allows our future business leaders to develop their vibrant voices, in respect and honour of our shared values.
