WHY STUDY IN MELBOURNE? Melbourne has once again been voted the most liveable city in the world. This is one of the reasons why so many International students choose to prepare for their future by studying in Melbourne. Melbourne is the state capital of Victoria and is a growing metropolis. It has a remarkable mixture of 19th century buildings flanked by tree-lined boulevards and an array of modern architecture that fills the ever expanding skyline. At the heart of Melbourne’s CBD is the strikingly designed Federation Square development which houses numerous bars, restaurants and plazas and is host to cultural events and street entertainment along the banks of the beautiful Yarra River. Just across St. Kilda Road is Southbank where you will find the Melbourne Arts Precinct. Here, you will experience a tasteful delight of performing arts and a display of Australian, Indigenous and international art in the National Gallery of Victoria and the Arts Centre.

THE BEST CITY IN THE WORLD! So many international visitors enjoy our famous sites and CBD services such as: -

Royal Botanical Gardens Major museums City Centre shopping Etihad Stadium (sports and entertainment) - Rod Laver Stadium (sports and entertainment) - Queen Victoria Market - Docklands and the Melbourne Eye

To enjoy the delights of Melbourne and enable you to travel and communicate with your friends:

MYKI A free tram service is provided within the city precincts of Melbourne, but you will need a MYKI travel card to travel outside the free zone, this card needs to be touched on and off when you embark or disembark from the tram. The MYKI can also be used to travel on the Metro trains and buses. MYKI cards may be purchased from and topped up at over 800 retailers including all 7-Elevens.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT In the CBD you are close to: 1. Flinders St Station (opposite Federation Square) and other main connecting train stations such as Southern Cross, Flagstaff, Melbourne Central. Tram stops are on nearly every corner and even right opposite our campus! 2. All across the CBD you can hire bicycles at several main points. See more at www.melbournebikeshare.com.au

DRIVING In Australia, we drive on the left hand side of the road. If you are driving in the CBD beware of “Hook Turns�. Trams and vehicles share the same road, hence drivers need to veer to the left to make a right turn at certain intersections. Look out for the prominently displayed hook turn signs above.

MOBILE PHONES There are a range of SIM cards available (pay as you go) that are specific for calling different countries overseas. Popular telecom carriers include Vodafone, Telstra, Optus and Virgin.

The trainer will moderate the learning pace, method and sequence appropriate to the learning needs. Learning methods will vary and can include case study scenarios, field trips, ‘hands on’ practical classes, role play techniques, discussions, presentations and assignments.

Course Assessment Assessment tasks and strategies cover a wide range of methods and may include the creation of specific written documents, projects or reports, formal questions (multiple choice, short and long answer), practical demonstrations, small or large group tasks, oral presentations, problem solving tasks, case studies and discussions. Broadly classroom assessments have two or three assessment tasks for each unit of competency or module. As a general rule for major assessments, students are provided with task assessment instructions including the date the task is due for completion.

Credit Transfer and RPL Students may be granted RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) or Credit Transfer if they are able to demonstrate that they have achieved the level of skills and knowledge equivalent to the unit they seek credit for through work experience, through life experiences or similar study at another institution. Students can apply for credit transfer or RPL at the time of enrolment. Applicants applying for RPL/CT should submit the RPL/CT application along with their original supporting documents to Student Administration. Where RPL is being applied, the student must submit all relevant evidence of work experience and where learning has occurred.

Plagiarism Acts of plagiarism, collusion and cheating are not permitted in any work completed for assessment and will result in a written warning and repeating the VET unit of competency, as well as incurring any associated charges. If a student is caught engaging in these acts a second time, they may be suspended or expelled from the Institute. All works submitted must be an accurate reflection of the student’s level of competence.

Qualification Issuance & Unique Student Identifier Students completing all assessment requirements for a qualification will be awarded a Certificate corresponding to the completed course. Students completing assessment requirements for part of a qualification will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for completed competencies. Completion of courses does not guarantee an employment outcome. Formal requirements other than educational qualifications (e.g. licensing, professional registration etc.) may apply to some occupations and locations. MCIE will not issue a Certificate or Statement of Attainment if a USI has not been provided by the student – unless it complies with the USI Individual Exemption policy as it applies under the Student Identifiers Act 2014. If an exemption to the USI has been applied, the results of the training will not be accessible through the Commonwealth and will not appear on any authenticated VET transcript prepared by the Registrar. Certificates are issued within 4 weeks of completion of the qualification.


work placement Some courses require a Work Placement (WP) component. Please refer to individual course descriptions for details. WP refers to any structured workplace learning that is part of a written agreement between MCIE as the training provider and a Host employer for vocational or further education courses or programs. It is designed to include work observation, work experience and other forms of workplace learning. WP is an essential component of many vocational programs. WP is designed to give students a chance to perform tasks relating to their course in an appropriate industry setting and ensure that the skills they are learning are transferable and can be demonstrated within a real industry work environment. WP involves assessment in the workplace by MCIE assessors and will also include supervisor reports. Where it is to be completed MCIE is responsible for ensuring the workplace of the host employer complies with course requirements. MCIE will only find one host work place per student. In the event the student is not able to complete their placement with the host arranged by MCIE, or prefers to find their own, the student will be liable to find their own, and MCIE will conduct checks to ensure its suitability. In extreme circumstances (i.e. medical condition or other matters), a second placement can be organised by MCIE for the student’s benefit. Real industry workplace. The workplace must be approved by MCIE WP coordinator. Pre-placement checks requirements for Early Childhood Education and Care courses. In order to complete the requirements of this course, students are required to fulfil certain pre-placement check requirements. For example, police checks, working with children check, uniforms etc. Students are required to produce evidence of pre-placement check requirements or are able to demonstrate their willingness to obtain them before enrolment. Please contact the Work Placement Coordinator for more information.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Australian Consumer Law As a consumer, every student has the right to receive factual and accurate information about the courses offered by MCIE before making an enrolment decision. To ensure this, MCIE has stringent policies and procedures in place. It is very important that you read this Prospectus carefully before enrolling into a course to ensure that the course meets your requirements and that you fully understand the fees and your obligations as a student. The availability of the Fees Payment and Refund Policy and the Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedure does not affect the rights of the student to take action under the Australian Consumer Law if the Australian Consumer Law applies.

Change of Institution The National Code 2018 restricts the capacity of students to transfer to other training providers prior to completing six months of their principal course. Where MCIE receives an application by an international student who wishes to transfer their enrolment from another registered provider prior to completing six months of their principal course, the international student must either obtain a release from their registered provider, or meet one of the following conditions: •

the releasing registered provider, or the course in which the overseas student is enrolled, has ceased to be registered;

the releasing registered provider has had a sanction imposed on its registration by the ESOS agency that prevents the overseas student from continuing their course with that registered provider;

any government sponsor of the overseas student considers the change to be in the overseas student’s best interests and has provided written support for the change. This usually applies where the overseas student’s study in Australia is sponsored by the government of another country.

Students should seek advice from Department of Home Affairs on whether a new visa is required.

DIPLOMA OF LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT

“I would like to express my gratitude towards MCIE, who have helped me to gain invaluable skills and experiences. Without the help of my caring trainer Kushan, I would not have been able to get where I am today. The training provided was of the highest quality – and I always felt like I was in such a supportive and positive environment. The whole team have been present from the beginning showing real professionalism, flexibility and competence. Along the way I faced some personal issues, but I could feel a real support from the administration and trainers who were involved in my situation.”

After some research about the courses from different institutes, I opted for MCIE. It was on top of my list as they have the ‘whole package’ to make you an excellent Educator. During my placement, which is part of my studies, I had a job offer. This was an amazing opportunity for me to join a big team and a well reputed Childcare Centre.
