Why choose MIT

Pathway to second year University degree

You don’t always need to do first year uni to get into second year uni.

If you spend eight months at MIT gaining a Diploma in Business, IT or Computer Networking, you could enter second-year of a relevant Bachelor degree the following year. 

Research indicates that ATAR score or Year 12 results are not necessarily an indication of a student’s ability to complete a degree.  If ATAR score is your concern, choose one of our pathway programs.  The program consists of eight units and is equivalent to the first-year of relevant Bachelor degrees at MIT and other Australian Universities. These programs nurture your potential and support those students who can be disadvantaged by ATAR score.

With no upfront fees, and Government FEE-HELP, it could be just the ticket you need.

Tafe to degree pathway

MIT offers students with a TAFE Diploma a faster way to get a Bachelor degree.  You can get up to 1.5 years credit transfer for your Advanced Diploma into a relevant Bachelor degree at MIT and fast track your degree in just 1 year. 

This covers all MIT degrees in Accounting, Management, Marketing and Computer Networking.

How it works

Our fast-track option means TAFE graduates with a relevant Advanced diploma could complete a degree in just one year.

TAFE graduates with a relevant diploma could complete a degree in 1.5 years. 

The secret of the trimester system.

 By studying your degree over three trimesters, you can complete your degree faster.

Smaller class sizes and face to face Teaching

Our class sizes are smaller than traditional universities. The smaller class size means fewer students resulting in the teacher knowing students by name and having the opportunity to coach better academic performance. This also encourages increased participation, develops student confidence and ensures you receive strong academic support.   The final result is better performance from you.

At MIT, we understand that studying in a new environment can be an overwhelming experience, particularly if you are transiting from High School to Higher education or coming from overseas education systems.  Face to face teaching and the ability to access your lecturers to clarify questions and give individual assistance, creates a comfortable learning environment. This fosters and encourages all students to participate in better learning experience in higher education and results in academic excellence.

Trimester systems

MIT has three semesters in one academic year – each trimester being the equivalent of one traditional semester.  

Trimester in a year allows you to complete a three year degree in just 2 years which means you will be heading to work while everyone is still hitting the books. The MIT Trimester Advantage allows you to:

  • complete your three year degree in just two which means you will finish one year earlier by using 3 trimesters a year instead of  the two traditional semesters
  • earn a full year’s salary whilst other students are still studying
  • more flexible commencement times with three intakes per year – March, July and November
  • learn at your own speed – as the three trimesters  allows you to spread your study load or alternatively catch up on units which you  weren’t able to complete in your prior trimester.
