About Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology

MBIT is an alternative pathway into Deakin University undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. MIBT Diploma courses are equivalent to Deakin University's first year bachelor degree.

MIBT is an excellent pathway into Year 2 of a Deakin University Bachelor degree, or into a Deakin University Master degree. With MIBT, students will be studying on the Deakin University campus, but in much smaller classes. Over 90% of international students studying at MIBT successfully complete their studies and go straight into the second year of their Bachelor degree. This is a significantly higher percentage than for international students in Year 1 of a mainstream university program in Australia.

Campus information

MIBT is located on 3 of Deakin University's Campuses; one is in Melbourne which is located on the south-east coast on a beautiful inland bay. Also, it is near to many of Victoria’s dramatic coastlines, desert lands, snowfields, countryside and mountains which all are an easy drive away. On the other hand, the other two other campuses are in Geelong, situated on the beautiful Corio Bay and Barwon River, less than one hour from central Melbourne by car or train.
