Melbourne Polytechnic

In October 2014, NMIT changed its name to Melbourne Polytechnic. This change of name was part of a wider, strategic process to transform the Institute to a more contemporary provider of high quality education and student experiences.   With a proud history of providing vocational education to Victorians that spans more than 100 years, Melbourne Polytechnic has grown beyond the scope of a traditional TAFE to a training model that blends hands-on learning and traditional theory with greater options in, and a variety of pathways to, higher education. ‘Polytechnic’ fits much better with what the Institute offers today and also has greater recognition internationally – especially across Europe and Asia. Additionally, our name reflects the broadening of the Institute’s operations to markets outside northern metropolitan Melbourne.   Melbourne Polytechnic has been delivering practical and professional education to the northern suburbs of Melbourne for over 100 years from trade beginnings as Collingwood Tech through to NMIT. Our history reflects the rise of vocational education in Victoria over the course of the twentieth century and into the new millennium.   Throughout the last decade as NMIT, we have adopted pathways and programs that are progressive in today’s education market, offering students a career-focused holistic learning experience.     Melbourne Polytechnic is one of the largest and most successful providers of both Vocational Training and Higher Education programs in Australia. We are a government funded and owned Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
