Staff of the School of Public Health (SOPH)

Keeping regular contact with the SOPH student administrators and your lecturers is one of the keys to success when studying at a distance. There is a list of all our numbers at the end of the Programme Handbook. The administrative staff (Ms Corinne Carolissen and Ms Janine Kader) are the main interface between you, the UWC and the SOPH co-ordinating most administrative aspects of the Progamme.

Save time by contacting the right person straight away!  One of the imperatives of distance learning is contacting SOPH staff when you need them. Many students find the shift to distance learning difficult because they cannot reach lecturers when they need to discuss something. It is important to recognise  that this is a two way relationship: you need to be strategic and make sure your needs are heard. You are encouraged to contact any of us when you need help. You will find our office and mobile numbers at the back of this Handbook.

You may call lecturers after hours before 20h30 and not earlier than 08h00. Successful students are usually those who ask for help when they need it.  Try to save time and cost by contacting the right person straight away. Please take note of the SOPH staff members below who play important co-ordination and support roles within the academic programme.
