HOW WILL MY STUDIES BE AFFECTED BY LOCKDOWN

BMH has implemented the necessary steps to ensure compliance with the national regulations in place for Higher Education Institutions. In keeping with our student-centred approach to education, we are committed to ensuring, as new regulations become live at the different risk-assessment levels of national government, that we maintain clear communication channels with our students across various media platforms. Boston has also implemented a number of interventions including emergency remote learning to support the Department of Higher Education and Training’s (DHET) commitment to “Save the Academic Year, Save Lives.” While every effort is being made to limit disruption to the various services we offer students, the extraordinary impact of COVID-19 will be felt across the board. It is therefore imperative that students regularly access the Learning Management System for support, interaction with educators and updates to schedules from administrators, etc.
