FAQs for Midyear Applications

Got questions about midyear entry requirements, application dates or online enabled learning? Your most frequently asked questions about midyear intake are answered below. 

Midyear intake is open from 1 May. The application deadline for timely applications is 31 May. Applications will continue to be accepted for some programs after this date, however they are subject to close at any time after the official application deadline.

When they start in July, facilitated classes will be predominantly on campus, in line with COVIDSafe campus protocols. This means more tutorials, lectorials, practicals and workshops will be delivered face-to-face. Classes that require specialist spaces or equipment will be prioritised for on campus learning.

For some courses, online facilitated classes will still be available for students who cannot attend campus or would prefer to study online.

You can find out if a course has facilitated classes on campus, online or both by checking the Semester 2 class timetable from 15 June.

Your application process will depend on the course you're interested in. If you know which course you want to apply for, you can search for it here, and then click the Apply button once you're on the page. The apply page for each course contains information about midyear application dates, entry requirements and what you need to start the application process.

Absolutely! We welcome you as a future RMIT student, to join our free 30-minute tour which is a great introduction to the City campus, facilities and resources. Our tour ambassador will take you around award-winning buildings, view learning and social study spaces and answer any questions along the way.

It's also an opportunity to ask current students about their experience, campus life and what to expect in your first year of study.

If you are unable to attend campus in Semester 2 2021, either due to ongoing international travel restrictions or personal circumstances, you will either be offered equivalent online activities or the option to complete activities on campus at a future date.

Students can see which courses have online class options by checking the Semester 2 class timetable from 15 June.

Yes. RMIT are training people for priority jobs that are in-demand and creating opportunities for individuals to reskill in industries that are most likely to be in-demand in the post-COVID-19 economy. You may be eligible to study a hands-on vocational course for free or low tuition fees under the Free TAFE or JobTrainer programs.

If you want to change your career direction, advance to a management role, build on your skill set or create a valuable network of industry connections, postgraduate study will give you the tools you need to lead what’s next.

If you’d like to upskill for an in-demand industry, return to study after a break, learn about a field you’ve always been interested in or build real-world experience with leading organisations, undergraduate study will help you make the leap into what’s next.

Every RMIT program has its own specific set of entry requirements during the admissions dates. To be selected you need to meet the entry requirements as outlined on the program page as part of the application assessment.

Some programs only take applicants with advanced standing at midyear. This means you must have already completed a certain amount of time or have completed tertiary qualification in the same or relevant discipline. To find out more about opportunities to transfer from one RMIT program to another, or how previous study may be acknowledged, explore our pathways.

Many programs are offered at midyear. To find out which courses are open for midyear enrolment, select your interest area (for example, business), and then select the program you are interested in studying. By clicking on the Apply button, you will see if there is a midyear intake in July.

Every year the availability of programs offered for midyear enrolment changes depending on a number of variables. If your program is not available during the offer dates then you can apply for any other program that is available, or apply again for Semester 1 from August.
