As an international IT student, the best way to improve your job prospects is to take part in a Professional Year (PY) Program - something to give you local work experience and help you develop that ever so important list of local industry contacts.
NIT Australia is one of two colleges in Western Australia that runs the ACS IT PY Program. But it is the ONLY educational institution in the state that focuses solely on IT.
NIT’s PY has been running for FOUR years and they now partner with 150 local IT companies in the Program.
Any Bachelor or Masters student who has studied for at least TWO years in Australia is eligible for the PY.
Participants will complete 32 weeks of once-a-week sessions with trainers with an IT industry background. Training for these face-to-face classes is highly practical. Classes also take place on Saturdays enabling participants to continue with their weekly activities (including work).
Internships comprising 250 hours then follow - and PY students are properly prepared for this time of gaining industry experience, with the final classes including mock interviews by industry representatives.
NIT makes a 100% guarantee that all PY students will get to do an internship.
After completing the internship (and so the PY Program), a participant will get a SkillAssessment and possibly points towards a Skill Visa, should they be interested in pursuing this path.
If you’re interested in participating in NIT’s PY Program then contact us now - they have MONTHLY intakes to cater to demand.
