Your Orientation starts here at How2RMIT and is the first step to a successful start to your studies.

How2RMIT is a free online orientation course designed to help new students get set up and organised for a smooth transition into university life. 

You’ll learn the basics about everything from timetabling, fees and loans, making friends, finding your way around, getting involved in the RMIT community, what support services are available and more. 

Who should complete How2RMIT?

All students! Whether you are new to RMIT or a returning student - you're guaranteed to learn something new!

Are you an international student aged under 18? 

How2RMIT will explain your rights and responsibilities and help you navigate all of the support services and accommodation options.

How do I access How2RMIT? 

How2RMIT is accessible via Canvas, RMIT’s online Learning Management System (LMS).

Canvas is where you will find all your course announcements and content, including class notes and resources, and where you will spend a lot of time during your studies at RMIT. 

As an RMIT student, you can access How2RMIT via the Canvas dashboard alongside your other courses. 

You can return to How2RMIT at anytime you need to as you progress through your studies.
