Modern internet communications means that there is no disadvantage to studying outside the major cities, but instead carries obvious advantages of lower accommodation costs, shorter travel times and negligible incidences of traffic congestion, pollution and crime.The development also incorporates a Catering Services Building, with restaurants on two floors and seating for up to 800 people.
The newest phase in the Institute's development has seen the development of the following:
