MITS receives a large number of applications every year. We follow a thorough application process to make sure that each of our students will benefit from coming to school in Melbourne.
If you're interested in coming to MITS you must first complete an Expression of Interest Form. This gives MITS some general information about you and your family. It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and must be completed in one go.
Expression of Interest Forms for our Year 7 Class of 2025 will be available in January 2024.
Once you have completed an Application Form, you'll need to provide MITS with some documents. A link to upload these documents will be emailed to you once you have completed the Expression of Interest Application Form. You will need to upload the following: student’s Handwritten Work and Family Consent, two most recent school reports, School Principal’s Reference, most recent NAPLAN results, Attendance Record and a Copy of the student's Birth Certificate.
Each year MITS interviews approximately 45 students for our 22 positions. MITS staff will travel to your community to meet you and your family and to speak with your teachers. Interviews happen in late August and early September.
MITS offers positions to 11 girls and 11 boys each year. Offers are made in early Term 4 for the following year. If you do not receive an offer you might be waitlisted in case a place becomes available.
To be accepted to MITS you must complete your enrolment forms and be approved for ABSTUDY Away-from-Home allowances. Our Community Engagement Manager will work with you and your family to prepare for MITS Orientation in late January the following year. We will soon be welcoming you as a new MITS student!
We are always keen to hear from prospective families, parents and students, interested supporters and new partners. To contact us, please complete the form below.
