IH Darwin

Like all of our IH colleagues worldwide, our top priority at IH Darwin is the wellbeing of our students, teachers and all staff. We are now offering online English language courses for all of our adult students, as well as exam preparation for Cambridge and IELTS. Our staff have been trained for our online course offering and are ready to support our students’ and teachers’ needs.

Due to demand, our ihBC Business College students will have all of their classes online. For this, we are using Big Blue Button. This is integrated into the ihBC Canvas LMS. ELICOS students attend online classes for 10 hours per week F2F, with additional support outside these times. TT students are receiving 20 hours per week F2F. Vocational Business students receive on average 4 hours per week F2F. All students are given supplementary work outside the F2F.

Students affected by travel restrictions or the virus itself, can continue their courses online or postpone to a later date.
