What tips do you have for new students about choosing where to study, what to consider when choosing which provider to study at, or considering coming to Melbourne Polytechnic?

Word of mouth, do your research, stick to a government provider if TAFE/VET in particular, speak to a reputable agent/partner – All of these points assisted me with choosing MP!

What are your future plans or goals? (Will you go onto further study and utilise the pathways is, or plan on using your Melbourne Polytechnic qualification?)

Would like to travel & rest for a while!

I’m back home now in Indonesia, but would love to return to Melbourne Polytechnic to further my education in the Bachelor of Information Technology with MP.

Would also love to assist help other Indonesians to learn about the awesome study opportunities Melbourne Polytechnic offers when required by MP here in Indonesia!

Why did you choose Melbourne Polytechnic?

  • Courses on offer were great when initially looking for study
  • Wanted to be in Melbourne, so MP fitted what I wanted
  • The provider is a government provider (not private)
  • Overall costs – fees are very competitive
  • The agent was helpful & what was advised pre-arrival, came true (re – reputed TAFE provider, industry connections, work placement opportunity, good mix of student nationality)
