Our History

Founded in the beautiful city of Sydney in 1999, AIT has been home to thousands of students from Australia, North and South America, Asia and Europe. We offer Bachelor and Diploma courses which are recognised by most of Australia’s leading universities.

AIT was the first school in the country to offer a motion capture facility in 2003 and is the first organisation in Australia to offer markerless motion capture in 2010. We also have the latest multimedia workstations, powerful software for 3D environments and real-time interactivity. In late 2010, we moved to our new state-of-the-art premises in Sydney’s Education District of Ultimo. This purpose designed, vibrant new campus located midway between Sydney University and University of Technology Sydney has already inspired many!

We stay connected to industry by supporting multimedia events, involving professionals in our curriculum development and participating in industry conventions and exhibitions. Our graduates work all over the world, pursuing careers in graphic design, multimedia productions, games, film, and much more. While building their imaginative portfolios of professional, quality work to carry into their careers, they also build a network of life-long friends and colleagues to share knowledge and experiences, around the globe.

Our Campus

We are located on a purpose built campus with state-of-the-art equipment. Our campus is conveniently located close to Sydney’s Central Station, and is in the heart of the education district between the University of Sydney and the University of Technology Sydney. This area is also known for the many media and advertising companies that have headquarters here. Broadway Shopping Centre is a two-minute stroll away, where students can enjoy the cinema, shopping and cafes.

We are proud of our friendly and multicultural environment, and our ability to make our students feel at home on our campus. By caring for the well-being of our students, we encourage students to focus on their studies and be part of the creative bubble. AIT has a wide-range of lecture theatres, computer labs, classrooms, and special purpose venues. In addition, there are leisure areas for students to work on team projects, collaborate and share ideas, or relax between classes.
