"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 set me up for a career in almost any sector I could imagine. My qualification is recognised anywhere in the world.
MIT digital technologies graduate
"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. 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
"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 really enjoy the environment here, and how the lecturers support me. MIT stands out because of the hands-on experience we get. The staff and lecturers here are very helpful and supportive.
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. The practical elements of the course made my learning meaningful and through the internship programme, I was offered a job.
During my studies, the lecturers provided professional guidance and they continue to give me valuable career support.”
MIT business graduate
"Everyone I graduated with got jobs quickly, and there are so many opportunities with ICT in New Zealand and overseas. 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’m learning heaps and it has been the best experience."
MIT sport student
"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."
