What is How2RMIT?

How2RMIT sessions are packed with essential information that will help new and returning students get ready and organised to make a smooth start to the semester and succeed at RMIT. 

Over two sessions, experienced students explain everything - from timetabling, fees and loans, to studying successfully, making friends, getting involved in the RMIT community, free support services, and lots more. 

Two sessions 

How2RMIT is made up of two sessions: How2GetStarted and How2GetAhead, which are currently run online via Microsoft Teams.

  • Navigating RMIT: Find out how to get your questions answered at RMIT, find your way around online and on campus and learn about COVIDsafe campus protocols. 

How2GetAhead, 1 hour 

In How2GetAhead, experienced students will tell you what they wish they knew when starting at RMIT, so you can get the most out of your time at RMIT and set yourself up for success.

What students say about How2RMIT

It was a fantastic introduction to university life at RMIT and a great opportunity to get questions answered.
It is a really big help knowing the university has tonnes of support and does not allow you to feel alone.
The presentation provided lots of much needed information on facilities and services in RMIT.
It provided with me with an insight into uni life and made me feel welcome and prepared. The current students providing the presentation were down to earth, creating a good atmosphere where you feel safe while giving tips and details into beginning uni and how to go about it.
This session was engaging and made me feel reassured that, if I get stuck and don't know where to go, I can always reach out for help.
