The Group is recognised globally as a leader for Higher Education, delivering excellent quality teaching, and creating an ambience necessary to foster good research.  As such, we welcome international diversity at TIG and are confident that your student experience with us is going to be an outstanding one. As an international student we know that your time at TIG will be exciting, challenging, academically rewarding, and enjoyable. You will play an important role in enriching and enhancing the experience for all our students and staff, helping to make the Institute a global campus.
Coming to live and study in another country is a huge decision for you and you may find that there are times when being in another culture is very exciting and enjoyable, but at times you may miss the things that are familiar to you.  To help you with practical matters and during any of your need we have the Faculty Committee and the Student Committee to guide as well as assist you in all frontiers.
