Paid IT employment quickly
The Bachelor of Information Technology at work (BIT at Work) might be the degree for you. After one year of full-time study in Information Technology, you move to a specially constructed part-time mode of study so that you can work in paid employment in the IT industry during the final three years of your degree.
Since this program began three years ago, 92% of eligible students have successfully secured full-time employment during their studies. Feedback so far has indicated salaries offered for second year students, average between $30 - $40K depending on experience/skills, the organisation and the position.
Assistance in finding paid IT employment after just one year of study
BIT at Work staff, together with industry partners, will help you not only be prepared for work, but will assist you in arranging job interviews. In your first year, you will meet people from industry, be assisted in developing your resume and covering letter, and given assistance with interview skills.
Gain credit for IT work completed during your studies
BIT at Work students may apply to omit two courses (20CP) and replace them with 20CP that is awarded because of full-time employment during their degree.
Gain work experience during your studies
Even in your first year of studies, there are opportunities for unpaid work experience in the mid-semester break in July. Work experience is advertised prior to the mid semester break.
Doing the BIT at Work gives you a number of benefits, including:
- paid employment in IT
- credit for two courses of study
- an understanding of real IT/Business
- an awareness of IT professional practice and ethics
- knowledge of diverse IT projects and their implications
- valuable corporate knowledge and communication skills and
- work experience.
