                                                                                  preparing students to make successful

                                                                               too. Above all, our students tell us they like the

You will also be impressed with the investment MIT has made in facilities on its campuses. Learning technology is up-to-the-minute
and purpose-built buildings provide just the right environment for each area of study. Today’s careers demand more skills and
greater insight than any time in the past. That’s why the quality of your tertiary education is vital. MIT’s range of degree,
diploma, certificate and short course programmes is amongst the best in New Zealand. Our programmes reflect what
the market really needs. We know that, because MIT has developed strong links with business and industry to provide
qualifications that employers value. Increasingly, selective businesses target MIT graduates not only for their academic
achievements but also for the ease with which they can transfer their new skills into the real world. And that’s vital in today’s global
market. We know you will find a study programme in this prospectus to take you just where you want to go.

A Stand Out Place to Learn

MIT, a government tertiary institution, is situated just 15 kilometres south of the heart of Auckland in the City of Manukau.
The location combines the best features of city life, easy access to and from central, eastern and southern suburbs of Auckland,
as well as proximity to so many surrounding attractions. The main campus area covers over 12 hectares of attractive
landscaped gardens to create a peaceful environment to study in. MIT also operates the New Zealand Maritime School
from a central Auckland location. MIT is a busy place with over 20,000 full and part-time students. But while it is busy,
it’s also a warm, friendly, and most importantly, an effective place to learn. This is why over 1,200 international students
from over 35 countries make MIT their choice. Students enjoy a campus that is dynamic, multicultural, colourful and
rewarding. This is a place where you can be who you want to be.

                                         study. One credit is about 10 hours of total learning
                                         time. For example, it will take a student about
