"I chose to study at MIT because of its strong academic reputation. The graduate diploma allowed me to develop industry-specific skills and the professors are world-class.
The training I gained in the IT industry set me up for a career in almost any sector I could imagine including financial services, education, transportation, manufacturing, oil and gas, Government, hospitality and healthcare. Graduates with ICT and networking skills are in short supply worldwide.
Since graduating, I have got a job as a service desk engineer, providing technical services to the company and customers.
My qualification is recognised anywhere in the world. MIT has given me an excellent foundation to be an immediate contributor to the IT field and for achieving my goal of becoming a managed services engineer.”

"It’s very practical at MIT and that’s what I love about it. Learning is very engaging because we’re always very involved, it was very hands-on. What’s being taught to you is exactly what you need when you go out into the world when you get that job.
From the beginning you’re in a position to get to know a lot of interesting people and form relationships with not only the students, but with the lecturers.
I wanted to actually do something, not just be in an office. Now I can do something good for the community, helping people make the most of their lives. Helping them help themselves, I love that.
My advice is don’t be afraid, just do it."
MIT social work graduate
“MIT is a great place to study. From the first moment I arrived, I felt welcome and like part of a big family. The small classes, great resources and support from our amazing lecturers kept me on track. They were always available when we needed help.
The practical skills I learnt at MIT gave me confidence during my placements and I graduated feeling well prepared to enter the workforce.”
MIT nursing graduate
"I love painting, drawing and anything with art, so I chose to study floristry at MIT. We have small class sizes, so you get more one-on-one time with the lecturer, which is amazing.
MIT is a really good school. It's given me the techniques, the talent, and the way of doing things in the right way."
MIT floristry student
"I travel to MIT from Huntly because I really enjoy the environment here, and how the lecturers support me to achieve my goal of being qualified. MIT stands out because of the hands-on experience we get. The staff and lecturers here are very helpful and supportive.
I enjoy how MIT has set out our assessments as practicums, we go out on field-based hours which has encouraged me, and given me the confidence to become an early childhood teacher.
The advice I would give to someone studying at MIT would be don't be nervous because you have a very supportive team at MIT to help you out."
MIT early childhood education student
“I loved that MIT gave me the flexibility to study while still being a full-time mum. I knew it was the right choice after doing a feasibility study of tertiary institutes in Auckland and MIT came out on top. It also helped me kick off my studies with a free office administration course while deciding my career prospects.
I’ve always been a people person with a goal of entering a management role, so HR seemed like a great fit. The practical elements of the course made my learning meaningful and through the internship programme, I was offered a job.
I work as an associate recruitment consultant. It’s an extremely fulfilling role which includes, sourcing and building relationships with candidates, advertising vacancies, managing interviews and negotiating contract terms.
During my studies, the lecturers provided professional guidance and they continue to give me valuable career support.”
MIT business graduate
"I chose to study at MIT after attending an open day and meeting the lecturers who I felt could help me get the right start in my career. It was a great choice. During my studies for a Bachelor of Information Systems, I gained expert knowledge, tools and valuable industry experience through an internship. I’m dyslexic but the open learning style at MIT allowed me to overcome any potential disadvantage from this.
Everyone I graduated with got jobs quickly, and there are so many opportunities with ICT in New Zealand and overseas. I’m working as a web developer, which I love. Thanks to what I learnt at MIT I can quickly pick up new technologies and techniques, and use them effectively in my job.
My employer has commented on the strong industry knowledge I gained at MIT and the new ideas I continue to bring to the company."
MIT digital technologies graduate
"I chose to study here because I feel more comfortable in this environment. You’re not just a number. Our lecturers know you, they know your name, and they know your lifestyle. It’s like a family here at MIT.
There is lots of variety and opportunities to apply our learning. We are learning in the books, we are learning with technology and we are learning hands-on.
I am also currently interning as a strength and conditioning assistant coach with the Auckland Dream basketball team and interning as a video analyst with Northern Stars. I’m learning heaps and it has been the best experience."
MIT sport student
"I began studying for my certificate in plumbing and gas fitting 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.
I got a job before I had even completed my studies. It has a lot of variety including, plumbing, gas fitting, drain laying, roofing, driving diggers and lifts, as well as organising jobs. Thanks to the support of my MIT tutors I’ve also participated in the Worldskills competition.
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."
