MIT students have access to the university’s facilities and community at one of Australia’s largest campuses. You can live on campus among your peers, take advantage of the library or go see some live music at the Guild Tavern.

Direct Entry Pathways

It’s never been easier to get into the degree you want. MIT offers a variety of different pathways to Murdoch University from Year 11 or 12,or the international equivalent. 

You can go directly into the second year of an undergraduate degree on completion of an MIT Diploma. Or, graduate from our Murdoch University Preparation Course straight into first year of your chosen degree.

Courses we offer

University Syllabus

Get a head start on your university units.

We’ve worked with Murdoch University academic staff to develop a teaching program based around the university syllabus. So, you get the advantage of being introduced to your degree content early on. Your transition into Murdoch University will be smooth.

Flexibility and Choice

Tailor your study the way you want.

With three intakes per year and a flexible course structure, you can speed up your completion or take on a lighter course load without slowing down your course duration. Plus with a wide variety of bachelor’s degrees available at Murdoch University, you’re sure to find the course you want.


Advanced Student Support

Being a student can be difficult sometimes, particularly if you’re learning a new language or you’re far away from home. At MIT, we want to help you do the best you can. We provide a range of academic and personal support for all of our students.

Preparation Oriented Learning

At MIT, we take a complete approach to university preparation. We don’t just consider what you’re learning, we also shape how you’re learning.

You will experience a university-style course structure of lectures, tutorials and seminars. Just like university students, you’ll be assessed through exams, course work, assignments and group tasks. At university, you will be expected to be proactive and independent in your study. At MIT, we recognise that’s a skill set you learn and we teach you how to do it.

Packaged Enrolments

Want the security of a guaranteed place at Murdoch University when you’re finished at MIT?

MIT and Murdoch University offer packaged enrolments for international students. This means that you initially enrol to both MIT and Murdoch University at the same time. When you successfully graduate from MIT you’re guaranteed direct entry without having to reapply. As a domestic student, you’ll also receive help from MIT staff with your enrolment to Murdoch University

National Accreditation

It’s essential to make sure that your course is recognised by any institution in Australia.

Our Diplomas are nationally accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) and are Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) recognised. Our English language courses are endorsed by the National ELT Accreditation Scheme (NEAS).

Karnkanthi Indigenous Education Program

Kaplan offers Scholarships within the Karnkanthi Indigenous Education program.



Kaplan Higher Education and Kaplan Business School recently signed an agreement with the University of Adelaide’s Wirltu Yarlu Aboriginal Education unit to offer scholarships to Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander students across Australia in the Karnkanthi Indigenous Education program.

The Kaplan scholarships will provide students entering a Kaplan course with $10,000 to go towards their program fees and $5,000 for any other education provider. The total Karnkanthi scholarship funds contributed by Kaplan in 2019 was $100,000.

The University of Adelaide’s Karnkanthi program nurtures the success of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, in Years 10, 11 and 12/13 as they transition from their senior years into higher education.

Karnkanthi offers a high support approach to student learning through building a reciprocal relationship of trust through a tailored program of guidance and the support takes into account the individual‘s needs and strengths. The program gives them access to:

  • Private tutoring for school studies
  • Opportunities to participate in academic, personal, cultural and career development activities
  • Financial support for travel and accommodation
