Confidentiality of Student’s Information

background Layer 1

All student-related information and data obtained from the students are used for the purpose of facilitating registration for the course, progress and completion of the course, application for Student Passes, visas, insurance documents, and other relevant course needs. Information is obtained from the students through means such as application forms, copies of passport and birth certificate and resume.

The student data and information are stored in the respective student's personnel files and in the student databases. The personnel files and computer records are only accessible by designated staff managing these records. Access control is through the use of user id and password.

The manual records of students’ information and data are kept in locked cabinets. During the operating hours, only designated staffs have access for their work purposes. The student records are not allowed to be removed from the repository unless prior permission is obtained from the Director, Corporate Administration and Services.

Permission to use the students’ particulars and data other than for the College internal marketing or students’ billing is to be sought from the Director, Corporate Administration and Services.
