RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise.
Since 1887, our inner-city campus has been a vital part of the City of Melbourne, from the 1880s boom through world wars, the Great Depression and renewed prosperity during the second half of the 20th century.
During the 1990s, the institution gained university status and developed campuses in Bundoora and Brunswick in the city’s northern suburbs, and later in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi in Vietnam. In 2013, RMIT opened a research and industry collaboration centre in Barcelona, Spain.
RMIT has a reputation for excellence in professional and vocational education, applied research, and engagement with the needs of industry and the community. As one of the world’s most globalised universities, we are committed to providing students with the learning, teaching and research training to excel in an open world economy.
We are committed to engaging students in active learning, and to fostering innovation in curriculum design so that students graduate with appropriate skills. Pathways between vocational and higher education offer students flexible entry opportunities, or the option of qualifications combining the best of both.
Inclusion is one of RMIT’s key values. We create life-changing opportunities for all, welcome students and staff from diverse backgrounds, honour the identity and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nations, and are an accessible and open institution dedicated to serving the needs of the whole community.
