Starting in the College’s third year as students approach graduation and careers, staff members in the career office will assist students with a host of career-related activities. They will help students choose a career focus, research employers, put together a professional resume and cover letter and practice for job interviews. As part of the academic program, the College will also build linkages, such as internships, with potential employers and encourage on-campus recruiting activities.
RTC provides students with a close knit community to support their personal, social and intellectual development. The College’s small size is an important advantage in this regard, as it is conducive to providing individual students with the staff’s personal attention. The counseling service aims to encourage academic success by helping students deal with stress or anxiety caused by study pressures, as well as personal or family problems. The full-time College Counselor, who has a MSc in Counseling, meets privately with students requesting consultation. RTC’s favorable staff to student ratio combined with its emphasis on personal development means that staff are readily available to assist students with academic, emotional, physical, or practical problems that may arise.
The Health Assistant is available to assist students with everyday medical problems. Students who suffer from any specific or chronic disease should bring their prescribed medicines and should inform the Health Assistant in advance about their health problems so that timely and proper care can be given. Students experiencing more serious medical problems will be referred to the Thimphu National Referral Hospital which is only 15 minutes away.
