Although the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) behaves in many ways like a member of the private sector, it is in fact a government institute. This makes it accountable for its actions to the ACT Government. CIT is a statutory authority established on 4 January 1988 under the ACT Institute of Technical and Further Education Act 1987. In November 1992, the ACT Legislative Assembly passed legislation changing our name to the Canberra Institute of Technology.
CIT is a Registered Training Organisation under The Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF).
CIT offers a variety of courses to international students from Certificate to Bachelor Degree level qualifications. CIT’s courses are industry focused and well-regarded in business and the community. CIT staff are industry professionals, with students benefiting from their expertise, support and personal attention.
