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.

Part A: Get Ready, 1 hour

This session will show you everything you’ll need to know and do before classes begin.

  • Get organised: Learn about your student email, fees, loans and payments, enrolment, timetables and other student admin essentials
  • Navigating RMIT: Find out how to get your questions answered at RMIT and find your way around online and on campus
  • Study basics: Find out about what to expect this semester, class types, assessments and study supports

Part B: Get Ahead, 45 minutes

There's more to uni success than study, classes and exams. This session shows new and current students how to get the most out of your time at RMIT and set yourself up for success. 

  • Get involved: Learn about clubs, activities and other ways to meet new people online and on campus
  • Reach Out: Understand the range of confidential guidance and support services
  • Get Job Ready: Discover all the career support services available in person and online at RMIT to help you get job ready
