AIM is now Online

AIM is pleased to announce that students are able to commence or continue their studies online!

Due to current restrictions and safety requirements issued in the wake of the novel coronavirus in March 2020, AIM has successfully transitioned all programs and units of study online. As a student, you can still access our facilities, online resources and interact with world class industry academics via our online portal.

If you would like to hear more about how we have transitioned to online, get in touch with one of our team members today.
