After an IT degree from a well-ranked university that won’t kill your budget and has other advantages such as smaller class sizes and migrations prospects? The MastersPortal recommends you look no further than the University of Tasmania’s Master of Information Technology and Systems (MITS) degree!

Comparing Australian IT masters degrees from Australia’s best-ranked universities, the portal compared a range of factors including fees, rankings, student-staff ratios and university locations. Its conclusions were fascinating – and extremely useful – for any student trying to choose the right IT degree from the scores on offer around Australia.

Key conclusions:

  • the University of Tasmania charges less for their MITS degree than what would be expected given their 2016 Top 500 Academic Ranking of World Universities ranking
  • Tasmania offers smaller classes with greater access to staff
  • the Tasmanian MITS’ location in the smaller capital city, Hobart, means lower living costs, more opportunities to improve your English and enjoy Aussie culture
  • studying the two-year MITS in Tasmania may give you improved permanent resident chances


So if you’re thinking about studying IT, don’t delay.
