MIT welcomes BEST Pacific students

Talofa lava, Kia orana, Malo e lelei, Taloha ni, Bula Vinaka, Fakaalofa lahi atu and warm Pacific greetings.

TEC has selected MIT to help support you with your transition from BEST Pacific Institute of Training to ensure you can complete your studies.


As you go through this challenging time, MIT would like to offer you support to ensure that we can assist you to transition from BEST to us to complete your studies.

We know how important your studies are to you and your family (fanau) and MIT is committed to making sure that when you enrol with us that you are well supported towards achieving your dream job or furthering your career.

MIT is more than just a tertiary provider, when you enrol with us, we are not just enrolling a student, we are enrolling your family to our MIT Pasifika family. We have strong connections to our Pasifika communities and understand the importance of education to our Pasifika students, families and communities.

We are committed to ensure that every Pasifika student at MIT can get personalised advice and plan the best study solution for you.

You can:

  • Find out more about what MIT can offer for you and your continued study
  • Talk about when you can start
  • We can help you complete enrolment forms and student loans and/or allowances application forms
  • We help you with developing an individual learning plan to enable you to complete courses on your programme.
