Under 18 Students

If you are under the age of 18, Australian law considers you to be a minor. At MIT, we take a special interest in the welfare and development of our minors. We know that many of our students are living away from home and from the care of parents. We’ve developed a comprehensive program of staff mentoring, regular meetings and supervision to ensure that minors get the continual support they need.

Scholarships

If you excel at your studies at MIT, you might be eligible for a scholarship. A number of scholarships are available for the first year of study at Murdoch University. MIT can help you find out what you can apply for, and guide you through the application process. More information on available scholarships, how to apply, criteria and deadlines is available at our.murdoch.edu.au/Student-life/Finances.

Student Council

There are lots of different ways to equip yourself for your career. While you’re studying with us at MIT, you might consider joining the Student Council. Taking on a volunteer position is a great way to develop leadership, networking and language skills. Plus, it’s valuable experience to add to your resume. You’ll get to meet a new group of people and take on tasks like organising social events and improving student life on campus.
