Welcome to MIBT!

We're delighted to see you are looking for information about MIBT and its highly respected partner, Deakin University.

For students from overseas...

MIBT is an excellent pathway into Year 2 of a Deakin University Bachelor degree, or into a Deakin University Master degree. If you're thinking about doing a university degree in Australia, but are worried about how you'll cope in an Australian university context, or if your English is not quite high enough, MIBT is the perfect solution. With MIBT, you'll be studying on the Deakin University campus, but you'll be in much smaller classes than you would in your first year in the mainstream university programs. You'll get the extra care and support you need to ensure you succeed in you studies in Australia. 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.

For students from Australia...

MIBT is your opportunity to get into one of Australia's very best universities - even if you didn't get the ATAR score you needed to go straight into Year 1 of your degree.  By taking a diploma with MIBT, you'll still study at the university, but you'll get the extra support you need to get you up to the right level within 12 months. You can even take the fasttrack option and complete your diploma in just 2 semesters, meaning you'll finish the equivalent of Year 1 at university in just 8 months. You can then join your friends in Year 2 of the Bachelor degree.

We hope you'll find the information you need on this website. I look forward to personally welcoming you to MIBT.
