Welcome to the Academic Secretariat website

The Academic Secretariat assists the Rector in carrying out academic policy as well as overseeing, directing and coordinating the University's academic administration activities. Beyond this formal definition of its role, the Academic Secretariat deals with a very wide range of administrative-academic issues.
