Future students

Find out how the Ngarara Willim Centre can help you with entry into RMIT programs and ensure you get the support you need to succeed in your studies.

The Ngarara Willim Centre is a community of staff and students who are here to help you throughout your education journey. For future students, we can arrange information events on campus or in your community. We also welcome you to get in touch with us via phone, email or by visiting a Ngarara Willim Centre space on campus to meet the team and have a yarn.

We have dedicated team members to help you with program advice, applying to study, accessing scholarships and accommodation, navigating enrolment and more. RMIT offers both vocational and higher education programs. There are pathways available to assist with the admissions process, and opportunities to transition into further study (postgraduate and research programs).

Ngarara Willim feels like my family away from home. Everyone is so welcoming, and I don’t feel like a stranger.
