What can I expect out of this qualification?

It is understood that knowledge is something that is created dialogically. NMIT provides an environment where lecturers and students engage with each other and students enrich their learning through opportunities to share ideas and experiences with each other as groups of inter-disciplinary practitioners. The delivery promotes reflective learning in relation to shared experiences and motivates students to develop enthusiasm for interdependent and independent study.
