To know if a school/program is for you, it is in your best interest to be a “student for a day”. Visit the school, sit in on a class, meet the students, talk to the faculty members and get an insight into the quality of the education being offered. Also, IHN, upon request, will supply you with contact numbers of graduates so you may find out first-hand how they have succeeded. We have a graduate portfolio which you may peruse at the school. You may call IHN at any time to set up an appointment to be a “student for a day”.
