Dress Code

How you dress and your appearance in many a situation defines who you are. Therefore appearance means a lot to Yeshua Tech in branding it students. This Dress code must therefore be religiously followed by students attending lectures or Yeshua Tech sponsored meetings or programmes.

No dress code can cover all contingencies so students must exert a certain amount of judgment in their choice of clothing to wear to school. If you experience uncertainty about acceptable, professional formal attire for school, please ask your Student Advisor or your Head of Department.

Students shall dress in a manner which reflects positively on the Yeshua Tech, engineering, the health, etc profession. Clothing worn while functioning as a Health student should reflect professional status, be clean, provide for safety of the student and patients, allow for full performance of all duties and provide easy identification of the student and the Yeshua Tech.

Guidelines

All students of Yeshua Institute of Technology will follow the Institute policies on Student Dress Code. The Yeshua Tech policies are found in student program handbooks. These policies are guidelines for a professional image to present to the public at all times.
