Academic learning and support

International House provides a broad and holistic academic program for all universities and degree areas. From college classes and individual advice, to writing groups and professional seminars, the program offers a student-centred and personal approach. Students are supported to transition into university, excel in their studies, and be equipped for their next steps into further study, research or careers.

The academic program is led by an Academic Coordinator and Librarian with the highest levels of university experience in supporting undergraduate learning and teaching. Study group leaders, with extensive university teaching and professional experience, run weekly classes.

Students are encouraged to study together in light-filled, modern study spaces. A computer lab, generous printing and internet allowances and 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 needs. 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.

"The facilities and services at International House are exceptional and are run by the friendliest individuals you could ask for. There are many resources that I am extremely thankful to have access to, such as the in-house tutorials, the library, and Bobeff café, to only name a few.”​
