New Students

ISBS endeavours to create an environment in which learners have responsibility for their own learning. All relevant course information must be accessible and all appropriate library and IT Facilities readily available to create conditions for individual learning. To provide opportunities for active learning, the college encourages the use of group and project work, field work, reflective practice, work placements, dissertation writing, real case studies, practical sessions with facilitative demonstrators in class if necessary, and the simulation of employment skills. The interactive learning between teacher and learner is cultivated by ensuring that more attention is afforded on individual basis and classes can be broadly delivered in lecture/tutorial style.

A range of student support and guidance services are available and information on these can be accessed through ISBS Student Support System, student manuals, front desk on visit, website and like other publications as well. This provides a student centred, easily accessible source of information or specialist service. These services compliment support and guidance available through ISBS Faculties.
