We understand and appreciate the challenges and the difficulties students face when they enroll in a formal study programme. Specially for those students who have not previously undertaken formal studies before, we recommend our bridging courses. It is a good way of easing back in to studies and recognise your learning strengths and weaknesses and find remedies to address the weaknesses so that you can succeed in your studies.
Students who self-identify or are identified by the teachers as having difficulties in language, literacy or numeracy which is required to succeed in completing a study program will be initially counselled by the Associate Dean of the college and a remedial action plan will be prepared to help them. If necessary the students will be referred to external agencies for assistance. We also offer free workshops on assignment writing and referencing.
AIHFE provides a library facility for use by students. The library, is located at the AIHFE administration building. All the library computers are connected to the internet for students use. We also provide a free Wi-Fi facility for our on campus students. All AIHFE students are able to access the Murdoch University Library facilities by presenting a letter of reference from AIHFE administration and becoming a Library member at Murdoch University at a small fee. Once a student becomes a student member (for those who study complementary Medicine ) of ANTA ( free membership), they will also have access to their online resources which contain many online journals and articles.
Unlike some bigger institutions, at AIHFE you are not just a number to us. We provide all the support you need until you get it right. All you have to do is ask. If you need any assistance in relation to your subject matter your first contact is your “study buddy”. If you don’t have one please tell us and we will find one for you. You can also contact your lecturer or supervisor directly. If you think the support you are getting is not adequate please contact our Associate Dean. If you have any other issue that hinders your study progress please contact our Senior Admin Secretary or our Registrar, who will be more than happy to help you. Remember we are just a phone call away. If necessary we will refer you to a professional counselling service. Please talk to our course advisor or Registrar or Associate dean if you have any difficulty in choosing your subject or course.
We offer orientation for all the new students so that they become familiar with all the procedures, places, policies, who and when to contact someone for any help.
We have small classrooms where students can interact with their teachers and fellow students in a friendly and caring learning environment unlike large educational institutions where you hardly get any opportunity to ask any questions due to large numbers of students in a classroom.
