"Currently I’m employed working in my dream field. Almost everything I learnt at MIT is transferred to my work today. I actually use those skills every day.
I left school when I was 15 without my NCEA level 1. My experience at MIT was like nothing I’ve experienced before.
The lecturers are very flexible and really encourage and push you to improve your skills. I haven’t had that experience anywhere else. They have a star-studded line up of lecturers and I’ve only got good things to say."
"MIT has been an integral part of my journey from certificate level to graduating with a degree. The skills and knowledge gained have led me to a number of leadership roles.
MIT offered flexibility that enabled me to study while working full-time. The family vibe at MIT was important to me and with the ability to work and study in South Auckland made things simple and accessible."
"Industry placement is key, it introduced us to the real world and helped us understand how we could use our learning. Everything that I have learned I still implement on my work projects.
The confidence I have built has also been very helpful. The quality education, the support, and the atmosphere makes MIT unique."
"I want to set an example to my kids that studying and learning is important. It’s never too late to pursue a different career and do what makes you happy.
Crossing that stage to receive my first degree will be my highest achievement. In a million years, I didn't think I'd be graduating.
The skills I’ve learned here have put me at the front of the pack, and I wouldn’t have picked them up anywhere else. It’s not just the technical knowledge, but also learning the importance of connecting with people and how crucial that is to get the best from them."

"Since graduating, I have landed a job as an analyst at one of the largest companies in New Zealand where I can see a huge potential for my career growth in the next five years. All this has been possible due to meticulously drafted course material and highly skilled teaching staff at MIT.
The course I took at MIT was designed in such a way that it prepares students for real world jobs. More stress is given on learning by doing."

"Education is key to success and MIT has played a pivotal part as the foundation of what I have accomplished so far. I have found myself no longer holding back but knowing I have the potential and mindset to achieve and follow my dreams.
MIT is a great choice for you to begin or continue with your education. Whether you are straight out of high school or looking for a fresh new start, MIT will have many options to choose from.
Courses are delivered in a way that keep you engaged, connected and involved with your learning and as a bonus, you get to meet great people along the way."
"My number one priority is to get an education and make sure that I can provide a better life for my family and the family that I will have in the future.
To anyone that has left school early, just know that you can pursue higher education, there are no limits on that, just believe in yourself and always strive for better. Just go for it and never let anything hold you back would be my advice to someone that wants to study at MIT.
I want to own my own centre – that is the end goal for me.”
"They taught me hands-on-skills and how to work with clients, making me feel confident to go out into the workforce knowing what I am doing.
I have always felt comfortable, I have always had good experiences there, and I found it quite flexible. The thing I enjoyed most was the environment that I was in with my tutors and my fellow classmates.
Definitely go for it. MIT – I do not regret it. It was, I feel, the best years of my life."
"I began studying at MIT instead of doing year 13 at school, and I’m so glad I did. It offered great facilities and our learning was very hands-on, which made it fun. We also had great support throughout from our tutors, who were mostly ex-tradesmen. Their strong industry connections meant we had a head-start when it came to securing a job after graduating.
If you’re considering MIT, I’d say go for it, it can really take you places. You’ll be well qualified and prepared for the workplace."
"When I began classes at MIT I realised this was my ‘foot in the door’ moment, taking that first step. I wasn’t prepared for so many doors to open and so many opportunities to be offered.
Lecturers connected me with employers, gave me insights into the industry and introduced me to their industry networks. Even the TechPark facility really surprised me with how modern it is.
You don't have to have a dream to start chasing one. I know I’ve made the best decision. So proud to be a part of this."
"MIT’s hands-on learning has improved my overall growth and development as a person, because I learn better hands on, I don't learn from a book.
What I enjoy most is MIT is local. We literally only live a couple of roads down. The environment itself has a huge impact on our learning, just seeing it every day is what motivates us to actually do better for ourselves and our family."
"I’m 55 and I would advise for those in my age, that it's not too late to learn. You can go to lecturers, and they will help you. Learning is good for you, good for your family, and good for the culture.
I chose MIT because it's close to me. I live in Otara and if I can’t get a car, I can walk to the campus. At MIT people are friendly and the facilities are really useful, there’s everything on campus."
“MIT is different because they are training students for the workforce. When you graduate you’re fully prepared to work in that field.
I enjoy the clinical placements, it is so exciting to actually gain practical experience in an environment where everyone wants you to succeed.
Three years seems like a long time but it will go by so fast, it is a lot of hard work, but it is so worth the time and energy in the long term.”
"MIT is full of diversity, and when you're surrounded by such diverse people, you learn a lot, and you get a different perspective on things.
When I initially got here, I was scared people would be reserved and solely focused on their academics. I've been astonished. The friends I've met here are my new family.
Nursing rewards me constantly. I'm learning and developing faster than I ever imagined. I feel wonderful when my patients recover and when I comfort grieving family members. I love being a nurse because I connect and help people at their most vulnerable. Helping others feels good, and I get compensated for it. It's my dream job.
I studied full-time with 2 kids as well as working. If I can do it, anyone can do it."
"After university, I was looking for something to do and volunteered to work on the Green Peace vessel Esperanza and that’s where I fell in love with working on the ocean. So from there, I moved into the yachting world and I’ve slowly been upgrading my certificates throughout my career. There’s lots of great opportunities.
I’ve done extensive traveling. I’ve done the Pacific seven times, circumnavigated South America, all the East Coast of the States, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean. Always traveling and always checking out the world.
The facilities here at this school are the best in the south pacific. I’m from Fiji so we don’t have these types of facilities there. Coming over here and learning in the simulator which is really quite real and helps out in real-life situations. The school here has really good, experienced lecturers. It’s a great campus. I really enjoy the camaraderie between all the students here. Everyone is very approachable."
“At MIT you gain practical knowledge and as well as a qualification. Studying was a total refresher of what I was doing at work and it has changed my views. It has enhanced my knowledge and benefitted me financially.
I loved the approach of the tutors and lecturers as they were very experienced. The flexibility in studying was so great as I have a family and work.
This has encouraged me to study more and enrol for other courses which will enable me be a logistics manager in the near future, and will help me financially as well."
“International logistics is so important for the world economy and MIT has provided me the opportunity to understand this particular subject from experienced professors that have been in the industry for many years.
The lecturers are really amazing, the professors are really helpful and approachable, and through my time at MIT I have learned so much that I am ready to step up in the industry with so much confidence, and also holding my formal qualification.
Thank you, MIT. I really love you.”
"Prior to studying at MIT, I was working at a supermarket which I wasn't satisfied with. I wanted to do something different so I chose to study at MIT.
Today, I can say is I am successfully working in logistics and freight forwarding industry because of my education at MIT.
I thank MIT for giving me both the knowledge and a qualification which helped me step into the industry with so much confidence.
Five stars to MIT and highly recommended."
"Studying at MIT is a good way to upskill your strengths and it's an accomplishment to study a course while being on the job – it shows dedication and makes you stand out from the crowd.
MIT operates at a very high standard where student wellbeing is a primary concern. The lecturers are the main attraction to this institute. They come with solid backgrounds and experience in their field of study and will not fail or give up on a student that easily. They teach you what you need to succeed, lessons are based on reality, and they care about their students and their performance.
My current job seems easy since I learnt about it in class already. The effort you put in now will greatly be rewarded in the long run."
“I graduated MIT as the highest paid software and web development graduate, all thanks to MIT for providing me with the soft and technical skills, practical experience and valuable knowledge that I wouldn’t get anywhere else.
MIT is by far the most unique educational facility I have experienced to date, that is because MIT has a different learning approach that is very engaging and practical. I fell in love with MIT because of how the courses were delivered. The lecturers were highly engaged with students one-on-one and there was so much practical hands-on experience that wasn’t available elsewhere.
No other institution's quite the same as MIT."
