The Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) course is accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the regulator of higher education and the accrediting authority for higher education courses in Australia. You may look up the National Register for this course. VIT is registered by TEQSA to offer and confer Australian higher education award for the completion of an accredited Australian course of study – MITS.
The qualification conferred upon completion is recognised by the Australian Government and will provide you with a competitive edge in the job market, both in Australia and overseas.
Yes, the Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) course is currently accredited by TEQSA.
You may see on the National Register that the Course is pending renewal. This is because TEQSA accredits higher education courses for a certain period of time, and almost all higher education providers must renew the course accreditation when the current accreditation expires. The renewal of accreditation with TEQSA is typically a lengthy process, during which time, the National Register will show that the course is pending renewal and the current course accreditation continues until TEQSA makes a decision. The same process applies to almost all other providers.
VIT has submitted to TEQSA an accreditation application for the MITS course.
“International students are expected to undertake a full-time study load as a condition of their student visa.”
Full time means you study 6-8 units in an academic year. Part time gives you the flexibility to take a lighter course load, which gives many working people more flexibility. Part time study is only available to students not on student visa. It is estimated each unit could take between 6 and 10 hours each week of classes, readings and assignments. This can vary depending on how quickly a student becomes familiar with the course material.
There is a lot of choice out there in providers of a MIT degree. Many of these degrees, however, can be narrowly focused and more coding oriented, locking you into hyperspecialised knowledge. This may limit some of your employment options/paths.
A MITS degree on the other hand, as the name suggests, takes a systems wide approach. We believe this may expand your potential employment paths and ensure your knowledge stays more future-relevant in a fast and ever-changing world.
You need a minimum of an undergraduate degree to enrol in the MITS degree. It can be in any discipline and does not have to be in information technology.
You may be eligible for 4 units RPL credit if you have a Bachelor of Information Systems or related degree.
Financial aid is available depending on your circumstances and where you are resident. Please contact our team at [email protected] to know more.
Domestic students do not have financial aid, but they may be eligible for FEE-HELP from the government and could be eligible for our scholarships.
In addition, New Zealand citizens may be eligible for FEE-HELP.
In order to be deemed eligible to access FEE-HELP a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder must:
You are considered a domestic student if you:
– are an Australian citizen; or
– are an Australian permanent resident visa holder; or
– are a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder, have been ordinarily resident in Australia for 10 years and entered Australia before the age of 18 over 10 years ago.
