General reminder: Please check your emails regularly! ALG sends important email updates throughout the term, and it is crucial to be on top of your emails while studying with us. We do not want you to miss out on any important information during the term!
As always, stay safe, stay mindful, and remember to take care of yourself. Your mind and body are your own top priority.
If you need any kind of support during your studies with us, please send an email to your respective campus experience teams, and we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
For those students who are due to start Work Placement next term and are starting to upload your required Work Placement documents on Canvas;
– You no longer need to select your current course from the ‘Home’ page.
– You must click on the “Assignment” button on the left-hand side and select the documents you need to upload individually.
A quick reminder to always ensure that you have added a Cover Sheet to each assessment you are due to submit and double-check that you have ticked each box and signed where specified.

“The College is culturally diverse. I did just a little adjustment to cope up with my studies because each one of us understands everyone’s uniqueness. My instructors are also great, compassionate, and understanding. They would share all the strategies and techniques they knew. The students are also nice.
My company gives me so much room for career growth. Working with them for 1 year feels like I’m not working at all because I really enjoy being in the eld, working with children and making them happy all day.”
Advice to current and future ALG International Students
“It will never be easy. But you can get through it with the help of ALG.”
