by professional and helpful lecturers. Skills
such as assignment preparation, exam
techniques and learning how to prepare
myself for each class motivated me to excel
in my studies and I am using these skills
today at Deakin.

Deakin University Your direct pathway to - Melbourne Australia
After finishing Year 12, I came across an advertisement
in the newspaper about MIBT. As I just missed out on
direct entry into university, MIBT was the perfect option.
It provided me with the means to get into second year
of the Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science without
wasting any time. The small classroom-style of teaching
made learning a lot easier. The lecturers were very
helpful, and were easy to approach. It also made it
easier to make friends as you belong to a class of people
whom you see everyday. MIBT provided an environment
where I progressed not just academically, but socially
too. I got to know many international students, and
learnt about their cultures and lives. This has also helped
in making networks that would otherwise be a lot harder
to form.

I am both a MIBT and Deakin University
graduate, and am now working as a
Graphics and Multimedia Developer in
South Melbourne. With a keen interest
in Animation, I decided to choose MIBT
because it offered courses and subjects
which were relevant to what I wanted
to study. At MIBT, there was a high
level of academic and peer support
that helped prepare me for University
life. I also enjoyed the small class sizes
as it was easier to make friends and
interact with each other. The skills
I learnt from MIBT and Deakin go
beyond academic uses, I apply them at
work everyday.
