We are continuing to operate. Our teaching, learning activities, study and support services have now moved solely online and although we are currently in an online capacity, we are still committed to making sure your student experience is kept at a high standard.


Library

Due to Government restrictions to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Library and study spaces will be closed until further notice, but this does not mean you don’t have support.

To help all students succeed in their online studies, the Library has launched a blog where you can find the most essential and relevant online learning resources in a one-stop shop. Current resources include online databases, a large collection of eBooks, subject guides, tutorials on Academic Writing, researching, referencing and study skills along with links to open other learning resources.

This blog will be regularly updated with new resources and links. You can access it via the Library home page or their latest blog here.

A series of Learning Support Workshops have also been developed for students. Subjects include developing skills to study effectively, using online study tools and staying connected with your peers.

For more information or to register for a consultation email library@imc.edu.au or visit the Library website.


English Language and Academic Skills Support

We have always strived to provide its students with services to enhance their learning experience. Marta our English Language and Academic Skills Coordinator is here to continue to support you.

Learning in a new academic environment in a second language can be challenging at best of times but given the current online learning situation with COVID-19 we understand more students may struggle with their language skills.

Language and skills support services will remain available to students during this time to ensure you continue to feel supported. Online modules, one-to-one consultations and in-class workshop materials will remain available online.

Students who require assistance with referencing, grammar, report and essay writing, presentation skills or simply want to have a chat to improve their conversation skills can book an interview online or email learning@imc.edu.au.


IT Support

All classes are now available online on Moodle via Zoom and IT support is available to help you study online.

You can also contact itsupport@imc.edu.au directly for any further assistance needed.


Student Services

With regular newsletters each week we are here to help you stay on track with your studies. Reach out to us at any time for anything we are just an email away studentservices@imc.edu.au


It is also a good time to get money smart! Visit MoneySmart a website provided by the Australian Government that has lots of information and advice about a range of financial issues, including a section specifically for students on how to live on a student budget. This might help you cut costs.

If you find you are facing any difficulties due to COVID-19 that has impacted your studies, you can reach out for help. Email the Manager of Student Experience directly laurice.geagea@imc.edu.au for any concerns you may have.
