Surveys and Student Feedback
We conduct regular surveys of students about student and campus life, any challenges and we love to hear about your successes. We hold regular student discussions as we are continually updating and improving our services for students.
Ways to Study
Students at the IHM can study in one of two ways: online or on-campus. Online courses allow students to study at their own pace and in their own location, making them ideal for people who are unable to attend face-to-face classes. IHM’s online classes are interesting and informative. Students can also use virtual discussion boards to communicate with professors and classmates to clear up any doubts. On-campus students can participate in face-to-face learning in a typical classroom setting while also taking advantage of e-Learning technology to supplement their classroom experience.

Education Services For Overseas Students Framework (ESOS)
The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) framework safeguards the rights of international students studying in Australia.
Australia provides rigorous protection for international students through the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislation, which requires institutions that provide education to international students to meet nationally consistent standards in education delivery, facilities and services. Breaches of the Act are treated seriously, and the penalties can be significant.
All institutions wanting to deliver courses to international students in Australia must be registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) and meet special registration conditions.
The National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 provides nationally consistent standards for the conduct of registered providers and the registration of their courses.
The standards set out specifications and procedures to ensure that registered providers of education and training courses can clearly understand and comply with their obligations under the National Code.
Important Information For Students
The Department of Education and Training has released a new fact sheet for international students containing important information about their rights and responsibilities while studying in Australia.
Students can access this fact sheet for information on:
- Choosing and enrolling in a course of study
- Support services available in Australia
- The rights and responsibilities of students on a student visa
