To assist international students with immigration matters pertaining to their studies and to assist international students in adapting to the local culture and environment.
To create a climate in which students have a well-rounded education experience through clubs, societies and workshops, sports, student events/activities, recreational and outdoor activities.

SEGiSphere E-Learning Portal
SEGiSphere E-Learning Portal is an innovative web portal that was developed and installed to enhance learning of accounting, business, marketing and computing at SEGi by complementing traditional classroom teaching. Interactive delivery also facilitates independent study through online learning materials, self-test exercises, discussion boards, announcements and chatroom.
The system provides students with access to real-time campus updates, and plays a key role in developing e-learning capabilities. This is a virtual learning centre that maintains and delivers online courses over the internet, making learning possible anywhere, any time and at students own pace.

The orientation programme offers students the opportunity to become acquainted with SEGi, its staff, fellow students, courses, facilities and environment. It is also a time for students to make new friends, learn their way around campus and get to know the social and sporting clubs and societies that may interest them.
