Regional, rural and remote students

RMIT recognises that students from regional, rural and remote areas bring a unique range of skills and capabilities but often face greater challenges in accessing tertiary studies.

At RMIT we provide an inclusive and supportive environment for all students to flourish. RMIT welcomes students from regional, rural and remote areas. If RMIT is the place for you then we are here to support your journey with a range of priority programs.

VTAC bonus points (Access scheme) 

RMIT and VTAC apply adjustments to the selection ranks of applicants from low socio-economic status areas. This applies to students applying for certificate IV, diploma, advanced diploma, associate degree and degree level courses that select primarily on ATAR.
