Academic Courses

No matter which level you start at with MIT we can help make sure you are on your pathway to university success. Take a look at the routes below which can be customised to your needs.

Why Use MIT As An Alternate Route to University?

  • An accelerated pathway means you graduate earlier – start earning sooner and accumulate less student loan debt. 
  • Students with a low or no ATAR – you do not have to repeat Year 12! The MUPC can help you meet university entry requirements.
  • We provide the academic support you need while providing you with the foundations for success.

Murdoch University Preparation Course (MUPC)

The MIT Murdoch University Preparation Course (MUPC) is your pathway into university even if you don’t currently meet entry requirements. This course prepares you for your chosen Murdoch University course.

If you successfully complete the MUPC you are guaranteed a place into the first-year of your chosen Murdoch University degree.

The MUPC is typically suited to you if:

  • Australian students who have completed year 12 with a low ATAR. Students with an ATAR over 50 should consider undertaking a Diploma course.
  • Australian students with no ATAR.
  • Mature age students who do not meet standard university entry requirements.
  • International students with sufficient English ability. If you do not meet English requirements we do offer English courses to get you there.

Students wishing to study BSc Veterinary Biology + Doctor of Veterinary Medicine should enrol in BSc Animal Science and apply to transfer in year 1.
