In order to cater for the accommodation needs of outstation students, the Student Services Department provides its own off-campus accommodation in nearby Academy. This accommodation is provided free to students with certain terms and conditions applied.
The Academy’s objectives for providing accommodation to its students are, among others:
1. To assist students in developing independent living skills in an atmosphere of challenge and support;
2. To provide students with a comfortable and conducive atmosphere that will complement their studies;
3. To instill in the students, a sense of individual responsibility for accepted standards of community living through respect for property and privacy.
Students staying at IAT accommodations are required to follow the published Accommodation Rules for Student Accommodation. Any student who violates the Accommodation Rules may have his/her tenancy agreement terminated.
Any student who has outstanding dues pertaining to IAT accommodation will be sent reminder letters to settle these dues, failing which the Academy reserves the right to evict the student concerned from the accommodation. In the case of students who have graduated from / terminated the course and still have outstanding Academy accommodation dues, the Academy reserves the right to withhold their certificates / diplomas until the outstanding dues are settled.
IAT is committed to providing an environment conducive to learning and strive to be the best in the industry. Student feedback is taken seriously. Academy procedures for handling student feedback and complaints ensure confidentiality, impartiality, procedural fairness, protection from victimisation and prompt resolution. Students have several avenues to which feedback can be channelled.
On the academic side, students submit a course evaluation every semester in which they have the opportunity to assess each course and lecturer. The evaluations are summarized for each course and lecturer. The Head of Programme will review the analyses confidentially with each staff and discuss areas for improvement.
While at Academy, we appreciate that students may face difficulties other than that pertaining to academic matters. Should students face any administrative difficulties or would like to voice any grievance; they should raise the issue directly with the person concerned where possible, or with an appropriate person in the school or the administrative unit concerned.
