BHI will ensure such information is readily accessible to students and is available in alternative formats.

To assist prospective students to determine whether a course is suitable and appropriate for their individual needs, BHI  will assesses all prospective students’ Language, Literacy and Numeracy  and digital literacy prior to enrolment.



Individual Teaching Faculties may provide a Handbook to students to ensure awareness of local information and instructions such as staff contact details, class times, term dates etc.
