Student onboarding modules

New students are required to complete three mandatory modules as part of their onboarding to RMIT.

Starting at RMIT is an important and exciting moment and we're committed to providing you with the information, support and resources you need to succeed from day one.

We aim to create a safe place for students and staff, where everyone feels included, respected and supported.

That’s why, commencing students studying at Australian campuses from Semester 1, 2024 are required to complete three free online modules as part of their onboarding experience. 

  • Academic Integrity Awareness (60-90 minutes maximum) 
  • Sex and Consent (45 minutes) 
  • How2RMIT (45 minutes) 

Students are expected to complete these self-paced modules by the end of their first semester of study at RMIT.  

Action may be taken for students who do not complete the modules by the deadline.
