After 101 years of operation NMIT (Northern Metropolitan Institute of TAFE) is celebrating its one millionth enrolment: Gina Fasanella who has enrolled in NMIT’s Diploma of Business at the Preston campus.
After completing the short course “How to Start a Successful Business” at NMIT, Gina decided to enrol at NMIT full-time.
“I had already experienced NMIT through my short course and I was really happy with it, plus it was a lot cheaper than my other options,” said Gina. “NMIT is close to my house as well, so it was a really easy decision.”
As NMIT’s one millionth enrolment, Gina will graduate from an Institute with a rich history of technical education.
NMIT started with humble beginnings as a technical school on Johnston Street. Initially, NMIT only had 57 students, all boys, as young as 14, studying preliminary carpentry and pattern-making, plumbing, engineering, sheet iron work and bricklaying.
Today NMIT’s current enrolments exceed 70,000 over 7 campuses.
