There is a growing importance of student counselling and orientation in higher education. Although both have always been part of the university environment, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States, they have been moving closer to a center stage in recent years as a result of the massification of higher education, its diversification and growing complexity, and the increasing types and intensity of pressure being placed on students regarding both their studies and the difficulties that very many of them anticipate in finding suitable employment upon graduation. At the very least, academic counsellors will help students deal successfully with these pressures while making the best possible choices regarding their studies and their future careers. This book compiles a set of papers in this regard.
