ACS Professional Year Program for ICT is a 44-52 weeks work readiness program, gazetted by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP), and specifically designed for international students who have graduated in Australia and are hoping to apply for permanent residence in Australia.
The ACS Professional Year equips participants with the skills and knowledge to successfully enter the Australian workforce in their professional field. It combines face to face workshops with online education and real work experience in internships, to help you to become a young professional rather than a student or recent graduate.
We specialise in ICT training and education. NIT is a professional partner of Australian Computer Society (ACS), an authorised CISCO Academy, VMware Academy, CompTIA Academy, IBM Academic Initiative Partner and Microsoft Imagine Partner.
Our trainers are highly experienced in Business and IT industry and bring relevant case studies into the classroom. We groom our students to be able to communicate and engage professionally, and adapt to Australian workplace culture.
Our IT career advisors and trainers have guided many students in overcoming their struggles in deciding their best specialisation pathway or pinning their first IT job in Australia.
Our internship consultants work with you to get you a relevant IT internship opportunity where you gain hands-on IT experience in an Australian organization.
Online resume builder creates dull and ineffective resumes. At NIT, your resume can stand out among others through our one-to-one review session with our career advisors and trainers with IT experience.
One of our highly demanded event is where we invite real IT professionals and managers to conduct practice interviews. This helps you to gain real exposure and an opportunity to connect with these professionals from IT industry.
We work closely with many Australian IT businesses, organisations and associations. We are able to help you engage with people from industry to maximise your chances of employment success. You also get a free ACS Student membership for 12 months.
About 80% of jobs are not advertised, so how can you tap on this? We equip you with key networking skills and guide you with the ways to access hidden job markets in IT sector.
Students who struggle to get desired score in English language proficiency tests like IELTS and PTE can benefit from free 20 hour English improvement or exam preparation classes.
You can opt to pay via an instalment plan instead of paying full fees at the start.
NIT is conveniently located near Perth CBD and is easily accessible via public transport. Free parking is available around the campus. Our campus is spacious and features modern learning facilities.
