About Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology

Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology (MBIT) is a special institution that accommodates students of both local and international backgrounds with study choices in undergraduate and postgraduate coursework programmes. Several of these course programmes include the areas of Business, Accounting, Information Technology, Computer Networking and Engineering (Telecommunications). Other than that, it functions as an English Language Centre with NEAS that is endorsed into its English language programmes.

There are two campuses linked to MBIT with one located in one of the most bustling cities on earth, Melbourne and Sydney. With both campuses located at the very heart of the CBD (Central Business District), they provide students with access to a wide range of public transportation.

An interesting fact about MBIT is that for students, it is an alternative option to Deakin University particularly through its undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. In fact, the diploma courses available at MBIT are equivalent to the first-year bachelor degree in Deakin University.

Homestay or “full board” accommodation is a good choice if you want to experience living in an Australian home, reduce set-up costs and improve your English. It provides student with a family-like environment with utility costs (i.e.: gas, electricity and water) included. Families (or sometimes a couple or single person) offer you a room in their home as well as three meals per day (i.e.: breakfast, lunch and dinner). All homestay accommodation is thoroughly screened to ensure it is a suitable living environment for student.

Once you have accepted your offer, received your student visa and booked your flight to Melbourne, you can make an online homestay request with the Office of Student Services and Engagement (OSSE) Team.

OSSE must receive your homestay request at least 15 working days prior to your arrival in Melbourne.

The minimum homestay duration is four weeks.

A homestay placement fee AUS$300 must be paid when you apply for homestay.

I am really enjoying my life here at MIBT. All of the teachers are very helpful and provide a lot of support. As an International student, my future depends on my studies and so I have been putting in a lot of effort and trying to make the most of coming to a different country for my studies
