COVID-19 is changing the way that we live and work. IDSA is responding to this by moving our courses online, creating immersive virtual classrooms where our tutors will continue to deliver the practical, rigorous tuition that our students expect.

As our curriculum is now based online, this means applicants across the globe can apply for IDSA and partake subject to passing the audition process.
