Following the successful implementation of online learning at the International College of Management, Sydney (ICMS) in 2020 owing to restrictions on gatherings amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, the college will continue with online learning alongside selected subjects for face to face learning at the start of 2021. When the higher education institute starts the new Undergraduate and Postgraduate academic year in February, it is planning to bring a number of subjects back to face to face again.
The transition to online learning at ICMS was made earlier in 2020 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, with selected face to face learning introduced later as government guidelines around community safety advised.
“Face to Face delivery will continue to provide the amazing experience we are famous for, and the online experience will add flexibility for our students, focusing on a personal, industry-focused student experience we have built our reputation on,” ICMS CEO Rowan Courtney-O’Connor said.
By virtue of its size, as opposed to universities with a bigger student community, ICMS has been successful in online learning, offering small virtual interactive classes with 24/7 academic support. With an online student centre offering individual support, the continued focus on career coaching, and the continuation of industry training placement. With ICMS Online Learning, students receive the same career-focused education, and enjoy the same small classes and individual support as students on campus.
