The Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) is a vocational education provider in Canberra, the Australian Capital Territory, and is one of a system of TAFEs. Qualifications offered by CIT range from certificate to degree level. CIT has campuses across Canberra, located in Bruce, Reid, and Fyshwick. CIT also has two learning centers in Tuggeranong Town Centre and Gungahlin, which are primarily for students studying via flexible or distance learning.
CIT and the University of Canberra (UC): CIT and UC collaborate on a number of initiatives, most prominently of pathways and transfers between the two institutions. CIT students who complete a diploma or advanced diploma are guaranteed an offer of a place in an undergraduate degree at the University of Canberra. In addition, over 150 formal credit transfer arrangements are in place where students can receive credit for CIT studies and reduce the number of units they need to study at UC.
CIT and the University of Canberra also form two-thirds of the collaborative organization, the National Centre for Forensic Studies, in conjunction with the Australian Federal Police. According to the National Centre for Forensic Studies' website, this partnership exists to collaborate in the design, development and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to academic qualifications in forensic studies.
CIT and the Australian National University (ANU): collaborate on the delivery of two associate degree programs – the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Engineering, whereby students complete the first year of the degree at CIT and the second at ANU. Further, graduates automatically gain entry into a 'linked' ANU Bachelor's degree with 18 months credit.
