About CIT

Princewill MengotWhen you were making your decision to come to Australia to study, what made you decide to come to the Canberra Institute of Technology?

I chose to study at CIT because of the flexibility of its programs and the outstanding awards the institution has received for the quality of teaching and performance of its students.

Compared to your learning experiences in your home country, how were the teaching methods at CIT different?

At CIT there is time for more practical work covered during tutorials. Some lecturers are quite open to helping students with problems they might be facing even after school or work hours.

Describe your first impressions of CIT?

Accommodating, especially when I went to seek advice from the CIT Students Association (CITSA) office.

What do you enjoy the most about studying at CIT?

I enjoy the vast mix of people from different cultural backgrounds and brainstorming with my fellow students in the library, on the lawn, or in class in search of answers to questions we get for home work.

What part of your course do you enjoy the most and why?

I enjoy the tutorials because I can sometimes get a one to one discussion with the tutor.

Goals and Advice

What are your long term goals, and how is CIT helping you to achieve them?

My long term goals after I complete my Advanced Diploma of Accounting are to continue studying at university and obtain a bachelor degree. I will then look forward to working in a big accounting firm. CIT is providing me with professional skills and advice on how to attain that goal.

What would you say to other international students who were thinking about coming to CIT?

I would say they shouldn’t think twice before applying because the institution has got many services that can assist them with both their studies and social life.
