NMIT puts students first with early enrolment options

22 Mar 2013

NMIT (Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE) is giving prospective students the opportunity to organise their 2012 studies prior to Christmas.

Those wanting to secure their place at NMIT before the end of the year can do so for all full-time NMIT courses not offered through VTAC and all part-time places (even if the full-time place is offered through VTAC). Enrolments will be taken at NMIT's Super Thursdays on December 1(all campuses) and 15 (Preston campus only).

Super Thursdays at NMIT are like mini-open days with information sessions on courses available in 2012, displays, tours, demonstrations and enrolment advice. However, unlike most TAFEs and Universities, NMIT holds a Super Thursday at least once a month.

The next Super Thursday (December 1) promises a few added extras with visitors being able to chill out with a free short corporate (seated) massage at our Preston massage therapy clinic. Other great, hands-on, demonstrations include a free 'mini manicure' from NMIT Beauty students (Collingwood), a demonstration in long hair design (Preston) and free BMI (Body Mass Index) testing from NMIT Fitness program staff and students (Preston).

While December 1 Super Thursday sessions are running at all NMIT campuses, visitors attending the Preston Campus in the early evening can also enjoy a gourmet BBQ prepared by NMIT's Hospitality Department and listen to some great music from NMIT Performing Arts students.

Some other highlights for the Super Thursday on December 1 include:
