Learning and support

International House provides a broad and holistic academic program for graduate students, for all universities and degree areas. From individual advice to writing groups and research seminars, the program offers a student-centred and personal approach.

The academic program is led by an Academic Coordinator and Librarian with the highest levels of university experience in supporting graduate students and researchers. The Graduate Academic Officer runs a program for graduate coursework and research students, including weekly writing groups and regular research seminars.

Students are encouraged to study together, in light-filled, modern study spaces. A computer lab, generous printing allowance and Student IT support technology-enhanced learning. The library, which is open only to IH residents, provides semester-long loans for all books (including essential prescribed textbooks). Our Librarian is available to support residents’ learning and research needs, and our student library assistants offer peer-support in using the Library. Multi-purpose study spaces and modern classrooms are available for individual and group study. Dedicated music practice rooms, and art and design spaces support students studying and developing their personal creative practice.

International House also provides outstanding international and local opportunities to develop networks and build career pathways. Regular professional development events give students the chance to build a cohort within the college and beyond, with alumni and industry, diplomatic and academic guests.
