Orientation week:
For newly-enrolled students, ASA organizes an orientation week before the academic year starts, in order to prepare them for the student life at GMIT. Each student will get acquainted with all relevant rules, regulations and will receive detailed information and guidance. The orientation program provides valuable information according to student life at our university campus.

"Out-of-Box" event:
Based on students’ personal development, various lectures and seminars are organized by the Academic and Student Affairs Department (ASA), e.g. the "Out-of-Box" event. To bring new and old students together, the "Out-of-Box" event takes place every semester, since 2015. Students from different academic level (BEP, freshman, sophomore, junior, senior) have the opportunity to connect with each other while meeting with GMIT professors/staff members or with inspirational guest lecturers. During each event, presenters are invited to have an open discussion with the students. The topics of the "Out-of-the-Box" event are driven by the GMIT students, and strive to be encouraging and motivating.



Career Service:
Since 2017, ASA and the Human Resource Department have started with Career Service, in order to prepare GMIT students for the demands of the Mongolian industry. The main objectives of Career Service is to assist students in their career goals through a broad variety of activities such as guidance on career planning, interview techniques, and CV & Cover Letter writing. The Career Service is available for all GMIT students on all levels.

Scholarships and Governmental loans:
GMIT offers scholarships to support students’ academic performance and extracurricular activities: 1) GMIT scholarships, 2) DAAD scholarships. During the fall semester, 2018-2019, around 45% of all enrolled GMIT students got a scholarship or received Government financial aid and loans. Besides these scholarships and Government loans, students can do part-time jobs at GMIT. Currently, students are working in the Library, Computer Laboratory, and at the Language and Didactic Center.
