Foundation and Bridging

At MIT we know the path to tertiary study is not the same for everyone. We want to support you from day one to help you achieve your dreams.

If you’ve wanted to study for a diploma or a degree, MIT can help you get there with our bridge to tertiary study options including our foundation programmes.

These study options have been designed for students who are new to tertiary study or didn’t get the necessary levels at school. Even better, the Level 1 and Level 2 programmes are FREE* so there are no fees to pay.
