What is How2RMIT?

How2RMIT sessions are packed with valuable information that will help new and returning students make a smooth start to the semester and succeed at RMIT. Over two sessions, you'll learn about getting started at RMIT, how to tackle studying remotely, ways to make friends and get involved in the RMIT community, free support services, and lots more.

Two online sessions

How2RMIT is divided into two online sessions run via Microsoft Teams.

  • Study basics: Find out about what to expect this semester, class types, assessments and study supports

Part B: Get Ahead, 45 minutes
