International students

Support and resources for international students studying with RMIT.

Transitioning online classes back to campus from 30 June 2023
From 30 June 2023, RMIT will progressively transition all remaining online classes back to face-to-face, on campus delivery. For more information, please see Transitioning online classes back to campus.

At RMIT, we’re proud of our diverse and inclusive community. We believe everyone deserves to feel supported, respected and valued in their place of study and work.

We’ll help you find your place and have your voice heard in our community. We provide opportunities for connection and somewhere to turn when you need support along the way. 

We all have a part to play to make a community where we can all belong. Learn more about our commitments to a diverse, respectful, and inclusive RMIT community, and how you can take action, find services and support, and get involved in life at RMIT.
