RMIT is an innovative university in Melbourne, Australia, one of the most liveable cities in the world. We’re recognised globally for study and research in technology, design and enterprise. In the QS World University Rankings 2021, we rank 18th in the world among universities less than 50 years old.

A global university

We have three campuses in Melbourne, two campuses in Vietnam, a centre in Spain, a representative office in Indonesia, and programs offered through partners in Asia and Europe.

You’ll learn from the best

At RMIT we pride ourselves on being connected to experts in your industry. Industry mentors and collaborative projects provide opportunities for our graduates to gain the skills that make employers sit up and take notice.

Take advantage of our startup accelerator to transform an idea into something world-changing. RMIT’s entrepreneurial opportunities can teach you how to shape a business or pitch concepts to investors.

Hands-on and practical learning 

Our internships, placements and work experience opportunities enable our students to put theory into practice alongside some of the world’s leading organisations. You’ll get the skills that directly relate to the needs of your industry, whether you’re a communication design student working with a brief from a real client, a media student working in a television studio, a business student on an internship in a leading organisation, or a mechatronics engineering student building a race car. 

International excellence

RMIT is a QS 5-Star rated institution, ranked as one of the world’s leading universities with a strong research record and state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure. 

Our response to COVID-19

In response to COVID-19 we moved to a blended study mode: we learn on campus when we can, and at home when we have to. 

We’ve enabled all of our courses to run online, without compromising on the quality of education and student outcomes. 

Until we’re back on campus, RMIT will welcome you to an engaged digital community, where we connect and learn together, no matter where you are in the world.

Vibrant student community and support

We support you during every step of your RMIT journey. We have over 100 student clubs, societies and collectives to choose from which are a great way to meet new friends, develop new skills and connect with people who share your interests. Our support services and networks will help you to succeed at your studies and can help you find a job and somewhere to live, and to stay healthy and happy. 

Living in Melbourne

Melbourne is a great place to live and study: it was voted the world’s most liveable city seven years in a row (2017 Economist Intelligence Unit Global Liveability Ranking). 

RMIT’s city campus is in the heart of Melbourne city, surrounded by public transport, accommodation options and lots of great places to eat. 

Royal connection

RMIT was awarded royal patronage by Queen Elizabeth II for its educational service to the Commonwealth and contribution to the war effort. RMIT remains the only higher education institution in Australia with the right to use the prefix “Royal” and the Monarchy's coat of arms. 

 

Since its founding in 1887, RMIT’s motto has been “A skilled hand, a cultivated mind”. Visit our website to find out how we continue that tradition of relevant and industry-focused education and research.
