Start your journey

Whether you’re based in Australia or internationally, if you’re interested in undertaking a Foundation program or undergraduate university studies, then you’ve come to the right place. 

Who is SIBT?

We are a tertiary college offering a direct pathway to a university degree. With flexible entry criteria, you can complete a SIBT diploma and then directly progress into your second-year studies of a university bachelor degree.

We have been in operation since 1997 and are part of the global Navitas Group (an internationally recognised education provider). We work together with other partner universities and ease the transition from high school to university level studies. We also provide opportunities for those that have started a career but are looking to upskill or follow a new career path. 

What makes SIBT different?

We are more than just an education institution. We offer a personalised academic environment and a range of support services designed to help our students prepare for success. Once you graduate with a diploma, you can select from a variety of university options to further your studies.

Here’s more on what we offer:

  • Over 90% of our SIBT graduates progress to university. Join more than 25,000 graduates since 1997.
