Studying a Degree with CIT
Degrees with a difference
At CIT when it comes to higher education we think differently. As the largest provider of premier vocational education and training in the region, we know the value of applied teaching and learning. Our higher education programs combine professionally recognised qualifications with real world skills. University degrees generally have a strong theoretical focus whereas CIT degrees additionally have a strong focus on the practical side – we want our graduates ready to tackle the workforce so we put the emphasis on job skills.
CIT degree programs are developed in consultation with industry to ensure currency and relevance. Our strong links with industry ensure training programs align with current employer needs. We ensure our graduates are employable and productive in the workplace, with the skills most needed and valued by employers.
We offer smaller class sizes and you will study in a range of environments from classrooms to studios, online and even in an on-site crime scene house. You’ll learn through individual and group tasks in first-class facilities and environments that simulate industry practices in the real world.
