The International Institute of Business and Technology (IIBT) is situated in the heart of Central Sydney CBD. The Centre caters to students from various countries, including India, Nepal, Vietnam, and China. At IIBT, students have access to a range of English language courses, including General English (GE), English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and IELTS preparation.
IIBT provides ELICOS students with pathway options into its Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses, spanning from Certificate III to Diploma levels including courses in Accounting, Information Technology, Leadership, and Management.
IIBT has also established an enduring partnership with Federation University, a collaboration that has thrived for 22 years. This partnership enables students to seamlessly transition from their English language studies (ELICOS programs) to both VET and Higher Education courses.
Students at IIBT expressed their satisfaction with the teaching and support they receive. They appreciate the well-prepared lessons and clear explanations provided by their teachers. In the NEAS Focus Group discussion, students were particularly positive about their teachers, describing them as “very friendly.” They also highlighted the effective feedback process, which allows for one-on-one time with their instructors after assessments.
In surveys and feedback, the teachers at IIBT have praised the ease of teaching and following the course materials, emphasising the ready availability and accessibility of all the necessary information.
The professional staff at IIBT hold a strong sense of confidence in promoting the institution and are delighted with the welcoming atmosphere and favorable working conditions. As one staff member put it, “It’s like a family, and we are part of the student life.”
