A flexible new approach to MITS with lower fees and less workload University of Tasmania February 6, 2017 Courses, Featured, UTAS By the time you’ve finished your undergraduate degree you’ve pretty much worked out where you’re heading with your career – and the style you like to get there. The University of Tasmania understands this. Which is why we’ve introduced a great new option for the Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) for *qualified students with a bachelor degree in an ICT-related area or a bachelor degree in any discipline and a Graduate Certificate/Diploma in an ICT-related area, the choice between two-course durations but the same outstanding qualification. Shorter time – same quality degree Keen to finish your degree and launch your career as soon as possible? Easy – you can fast track your degree in only one and a half years. Prefer to split your time between studies and enjoying everything Tasmania has to offer, and have a shot at a post-study work visa? No problem. Complete the same number of units as those in fast track but do it over two years instead of one and a half. Whichever option you choose, you still come out with the same quality degree with the same professional recognition. Cheaper option Even better, if you choose to study your 12 units over 2 years, you don’t pay the same price as students studying 16 units over the same period! You pay exactly the same price whether you choose to study your 12 units over one and a half or two years. That’s a great deal! What are the details? To complete a Master of Information Technology and Systems, you must complete at least 12 units up to a maximum of 16 units, depending on your educational background.* If you’re eligible for the 12-unit degree, you can choose to complete the 12 units over one of two durations: 1.5 years (“fast-track”) 2 years How to enter the 12 unit course? If you have already applied for the MITS course or you have already received your offer for semester 2, 2017 or later, you simply need to apply for credit. If you want to apply for the MITS for the first time, you should submit an application and at the time of the application make a request for credit. Once credit is granted, you will be offered the choice of either the shorter or two-year duration. Those who successfully complete the degree over two years may be eligible for a post-study work visa. Consult the Department of Immigration and Border Protection for more information.
