AIH will be moving to 4 intakes per year

Dear students and agent partners,

Effective immediately, AIH will be moving to 4 intakes per year. A formal market communication will be issued by Monday 24th April 2023. If you do not receive this notice please advise your AIH marketing representative so that we can update your contact details in our systems.

AIH will still deliver subjects in 4-week blocks (10 blocks per year), but we are reducing our course starting points to improve the overall student orientation and onboarding experience. For the remainder of 2023, applicants are encouraged to commence their course in the June, August, and October intakes. If your student holds an existing offer of admission for the July, September, or November starting dates, please simply reply to this to indicate the preferred new intake. If it is not possible for existing offerees to change intakes, the AIH will honour the proposed course start date and intake.

From 2024, only 4 intakes will be available each year – February, May, August, and October.

We thank you for your kind understanding and look forward to your confirmation.

Nepal Festival Melbourne 2022: A Special Festival to Celebrate Nepal’s Cultural and Historical Heritage

This year’s Nepal Festival took place on Saturday, 10th September 2022 at Federation Square with the theme of “Celebrating Culture, Embracing Diversity”. As part of AIH’s commitment to supporting the communities, we joined hands with the Non-Resident Nepalese Association of Victoria in their efforts to promote Nepalese culture, cuisine and music as a platinum partner of the event.

AIH participated in this festival by setting up a stall to present information on various course options that are available for International Students and upcoming courses. AIH’s GIF Photo booth was a major attraction of the event. Everyone had an absolute blast using the props and taking unlimited photos and boomerangs. The guests were provided instantly printed photo strips to take home. Coralie Morrissey, AIH’s CEO, and business development team members Rishi Ranjan and Indra Adhikari attended the event.

The festival showcased the culture and activities of the people of Nepal. The event offered a unique opportunity for Melburnians to experience the vibrant colours and rich flavours of one of Asia’s most spectacular countries. The event witnessed an overwhelming response from the community and was a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about the culture, food as well as music of Nepal.

AIH students runners up in Global Challenge!

The Global Management Challenge is an international competition represented by more than 30 countries. This competition is based on business simulations with the objective of obtaining the highest investment performance. University students, among others, participate in this challenge.

Members of the team include Anjana Dhungana (Team Leader), Leewan Belle Morones, Charlene Christine Servandil and Arafat Anik. Team participants gain knowledge while enhancing their problem solving and data analytical skills. Congratulations to all involved.

Adaptive Web-based System for Learning Python Programming Language

AIH is proud to present Web-based educational system for learning Python programming. All students who are enrolled in the unit Foundations of programming can use the adaptive Web-based system designed by the University of Pittsburgh. It supports open learner modelling and different types of learning content. It tracks student activity and provides recommendations and feedback to the student.

In this research project, we plan to analyse data obtained from applying the adaptive platform that provides access to different types of learning resources including problems, quizzes, examples, reading material, visualisations, and simulations. A wide range of adaptative technologies (including adaptive navigation, intelligent tutoring, adaptive recommendation, etc.) is integrated to support personalised learning.

Learner behaviour in the system will be observed. All the actions made, problems solved, and visited animated examples will be analysed. By analysing the students’ interactions with the system, we will be able to understand their interests, intentions, goals, and knowledge level. The study will contribute to a better understanding of how weekly practice with the system during the course correlated with encouraging effect on engagement and efficiency, helping students to complete more practice content faster, and easier.

We expect higher learning gain by encouraging students to use the additional educational resources provided through the system and improving students’ learning experience.

From the studies conducted at Pittsburgh, USA, and Novi Sad, Serbia, significant parameters were extracted and they will be compared to the study being performed at our institution, AIH, Sydney.

CPA Presentation

On 1st September 2020, Kim Hwang FCPA International Business Development Manager CPA Australia was graceful to accept an invitation from AIH to do a presentation for students. During her presentation, she discussed the importance of communication, teamwork and interpersonal skills among others. Her presentation was engaging and informative. She explored different options and pathways students can pursue after graduation. A big thanks to Kim and all students who attended the session. Looking forward to your involvement in future industry events!
