Why study with us
Since 1998, Victorian Institute of Technology (VIT) has established a proud reputation of delivering quality education in the higher education and vocational fields.
Our students achieve skills and qualifications fashioned on industry needs, to give a solid foundation for their careers.
VIT caters for all students, especially those who may not be suited for large public universities, but require affordable, flexible alternatives in tertiary or vocational qualifications.
In the higher education sector, our Bachelor of Information Technology specialises in primary IT skills majoring in networking or application development. This can lead graduates into being prepared to undertake further system certifications in Networking, or to complete a postgraduate Master of Information Technology qualification.
On the vocational side, we offer certificate and diploma courses in hospitality management, information technology, commercial cookery and patisserie.
At VIT, our class sizes are smaller than traditional universities, allowing greater student-teacher contact and support.
FEE-HELP is available for eligible students as well as other flexible, affordable options.
VIT qualifications are recognised by professional industry bodies: Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA provider no: PRV14007); Australian Skills Quality Authority ASQA – RTO no: 20829, CRICOS (provider no: 02044E) and the Department of Education.
