English requirements

How to provide evidence of your English language proficiency for admission to RMIT University as an international student.

You are required to provide current evidence of your English language proficiency for admission to RMIT.

International students can provide their results from one of these three options:

  1. an accepted English language proficiency test, or
  2. an accepted English language provider, or
  3. a recognised qualification

Minimum English language requirements may differ between programs at the same study level.

You are strongly advised to check the minimum English requirements required for your preferred program. You will find programs in our Study with us section.

A final assessment will also be made by RMIT on receipt of your application and full supporting documentation.

Please note that where you have achieved more than one form of English language proficiency only the most recent achievement will be considered in the admission decision. 

You must also meet the minimum academic requirements of your preferred program.

Study abroad and exchange students coming to Melbourne have their own English language requirements they should review.
