Our Academic Support Program is a FREE and VALUABLE service provided to International House residents to assist them in reaching their full potential in their university studies. This is a key reason why it is best to stay at IH rather than at an off campus accommodation alternative.
Each semester, an academic student review is undertaken to identify residents who need additional support, but also to recognise those who are performing at a high standard.
The Deputy Director provides academic counselling and arranges free tutorials in courses that have traditionally proved difficult or unusually challenging. Support for residents may also be available in the form of study groups, workshops, informative literature, plus one-on-one assistance in areas such as editing, proofreading and personal mentoring. This is especially helpful for students where English is not their first language. It’s also another way we help our students gain a global advantage.
In addition to the Academic Support Program, we also provide residents with well-equipped study facilities and learning resources.
