Deakin University and leading education provider Navitas are pleased to announce plans to extend their long and successful partnership by renaming the pathway college, the Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology (MIBT), to Deakin College.
Via MIBT, Navitas has successfully collaborated with Deakin University since 1996, providing pathway courses for both domestic and international students. In that time more than 14,000 students have successfully progressed to degree programs at Deakin.
Deakin College will integrate more closely with the University to enable further growth of international and domestic enrolments across Deakin University campuses in Melbourne and Geelong.
The refreshed physical context and teaching and learning approaches of the College will reflect recent developments in teaching and learning, physical spaces, digital technologies and course offerings at the University.
The new College will also provide an improved student experience and superior student outcomes as well as reflecting the enhanced standing and reputation of the University.
Deakin University and Navitas will transition to operation of the renewed Deakin College from July 2015.
