Getting the Grades

Living on campus means having easy access to the University’s study support options that include tutor support that extends after hours. Individual consultations complement workshops for academic skills. IHD study groups provide further help and feedback.

IHD’s academic program for residents links support provided by IHD internally with support available from the University outside of lectures and formal classes. The main planks of the program are:
