Support for our students

For many new students, joining a course at the IAB will be their first experience of living away from home, and for most it will be the first time they have gone to live in a foreign country.

It’s a big step that will be filled with excitement, but it’s a step that should also be taken with security and confidence.

In-House Counselling service

The IAB  offers a full-time, in-house counselling service for students, and will also quickly direct you to appropriate medical care and support if you are going through a difficult time.

Most of all we are here to help make the time spent at the Institute happy and fulfilling. We are a small institution and caring community, which means we are able to provide holistic care to all our students.
