To be a professional you need to train like a professional and to train like a professional you need professional facilities. By keeping this logical order in mind, we’ve developed our facilities to provide you with an environment closest to the professional world. Being up- to-date with technology and being a step ahead when it comes to accessing technology is of key importance to us. Each of our Schools is equipped with purpose-built facilities that best serve the programmes they offer. Below are some of the features that explain how we provide you with a modern professional environment at GIFT:
Advanced Lecture Theatres
Starting with your lectures, GIFT University uses modern day teaching aids to make the learning experience more interactive and rewarding. For example, our tutors will often browse online for the latest information during their lectures so that what one learns is not just confined to the books. Our lecture theatres are designed to be comfortable and resourceful with whiteboards, projection screens, microphones, video projectors and Internet being readily available.

The presence of wireless networks on campus enable students to stay connected to information services whether they are in one place or on the go.
An ever expanding library gives student’s access to reading material other than course books. This includes books on a variety of subjects from the leading international authors, journals, case studies and research publications that helps students tap into a wealth of knowledge.
In addition to the traditional library, our digital library helps keep students connected with the most up-to-date journals and helps them conduct better research. With over 26,000 digital books, numerous case studies, journals and academic videos, the digital library is very useful for the tech savvy generation.
