Abstract

This study was aimed at suggesting improvements to the existing system of student counseling in Sri Lankan universities. Data was collected by survey of students of the university system in order to identify the common types of problems they have as university students and to assess the extent to which those are addressed by the existing counseling service. Once identified suggestions for modifications are suggested. Counselors must be introduced to the students and also must be trained to help students, further a job description must be issued with every appointment letter emphasizing their responsibility. A counseling system based on the concept of “Admirable friendship” is suggested.

Keywords: Student counseling, Admirable friendship
