Humanities Activities Academy

iHumanities Distance Learning

Our iHumanities College activities can be accessed remotely so that distance-learners can enjoy our numerous social and research opportunities.

Part of what makes us unique is that there is a close learning community between staff and students afforded partly by our teaching methods but also by our view that learning should be nonexclusive and that such collegiality enriches the learning experience of our students, whether undergraduate and postgraduate.
