RMIT University has strengthened its status as a global university of technology and design with the launch of a Global website.
The site, which can be found at RMIT Global, is designed to showcase the University’s key strengths to prospective students, staff and research and industry partners.
Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Margaret Gardner AO, said RMIT had long been a pioneer among Australian universities in international education.
"In 1994, RMIT was the first Australian university to adopt an explicit international strategy incorporating the delivery of teaching programs off-shore and on-shore and an education abroad program where students spend part of their course studying overseas," she said.
"The Global site illustrates our global connections. We deliver programs in 12 countries across Europe, Asia and Australia and our students have opportunities to work and study overseas through exchanges, internships or work placements.
"Our academics are engaged in ground-breaking research with organisations, governments and communities around the world."
Visitors to the Global site can click through to RMIT’s Vietnam, Australia or Europe websites to access more detailed information on study, research or partnerships in those locations.
RMIT has two campuses in Vietnam and a centre in Barcelona, Spain. Forty per cent of RMIT’s 82,000 students are international – 16 per cent studying in Australia and 24 per cent offshore.
