Our courses are developed with future workforce demands in mind, blending academic excellence with industry insight, and are designed in collaboration with industry to ensure students gain the practical skills needed to succeed.

As a student, you’ll have opportunities to study under the guidance of some of the world’s brightest academic leaders and benefit from RMIT’s close partnerships with industry. Access to industry mentoring gives you the opportunity to learn directly from professionals, and work-integrated learning will allow you to use what you learn in the classroom in real-life scenarios. You might find yourself in an industry internship or working on a real project for one of RMIT’s community partners.

With three campuses in Melbourne (City, Brunswick and Bundoora), two in Vietnam (Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City) and a research centre in Barcelona, Spain, as well as educational and industry partnerships across the world, RMIT is a truly global university. We encourage our students to experience the world, through overseas opportunities, including short study tours, semester-long exchanges, study abroad and international work experience.
