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 may 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 Melbourne in late January the following year. We will soon be welcoming you as a new MITS student!
