MIBT - alternative entry to university studies
MIBT offers an alternative pathway to university studies for people who have not completed Year 12 at an Australian school.
Study at Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology (MIBT) provides a direct pathway to undergraduate study at Deakin in the areas of business and commerce, computing and information technology, engineering, health sciences, science, management, and media and communications.
On satisfactory completion of an MIBT Diploma, and subject to meeting Deakin's academic entrance criteria, MIBT graduates will be offered a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) to start in second year of a Deakin undergraduate degree at one of Deakin's campuses.
MIBT offers a Certificate IV course, suitable for students who have finished Year 11 in Australia or equivalent, which may qualify them for first-year entry to an undergraduate course at Deakin. Alternatively, these students can continue at MIBT to complete the Diploma and gain entry to undergraduate studies at Deakin in second year.
MIBT also has a Postgraduate Qualifying Program for entry to Masters degrees in the disciplines of business and law.
The advantages of MIBT include:
- a fast-track option of three semesters per year
- three intakes a year (in March, June and October)
- small classes and individual attention
- academic and welfare support services.
