ABSTRACT

Various policies have been framed from time to time to uplift the quality of higher education. But policy makers usually miss the key element of higher education that is students. Giving support to students including social and emotional support along with academic support brings awareness in students and can help a lot in enhancing the quality of higher education. The present study has been conducted to evaluate the student support services provided by authorities for improvement in individual as well as in improving the functioning of the institution. Majority of the students were not satisfied with the support system provided to them in higher education institutions. Students demanded regular revision in the curriculum according to the changing needs of the society, preferred knowledge with skills, addition of books in library and good support system for disabled students.
