Taking the next step with your offer
You’ve received an offer from RMIT. What’s next?
Step 1: Accept your offer
Well done, you’re getting closer to the finish line! You now have to make a big decision on what you want to do with your offer.
Your options are:
Accept your offer
Decline your offer
While you're making your decision you may have some questions about how the offer process works - we've collected answers to the most commonly asked questions we receive each year below:
If you receive multiple offers – once you accept your preferred program offer, the other offers will be automatically withdrawn.
This is also the same for if you receive an offer whilst other preferences are still under assessment – the remaining preferences will also be withdrawn once you accept the offer you prefer.
It is recommended that you accept your offer as soon as possible. You will be advised via email if you have not accepted your offer after some time and are at risk of having your offer lapse.
Should you choose to decline your offer, we will be unable to reactivate it. However, you can reapply for the same program if you wish.
Step 2: Complete your enrolment
The fun part now begins. 2018 enrolments will open on 8 November. Don’t worry, we will send you a reminder email closer to the date. From this date, you can select the courses you want to study and confirm your place in your program.
Have a look at your enrolment program structure which outlines the courses you must complete each year to meet the academic requirements of your program. This will help you with your course selection. When you are ready to enrol, follow this guide. If you are thinking of deferring your studies to 2019, you can do so by following the steps here.
Step 3: Timetable your classes
Now that you have selected the courses you want to study, the next step is to plan the class times you want to attend. There are 3 simple steps involved:
Plan your timetable
Enter your class preference
Review and adjust your timetable
Refer to this page to see when you have to complete each of the above steps. At this point, you might also consider applying for credit if you have completed previous study or have any relevant work experience.
Step 4: Prepare yourself for study
Our Study and Learning Centre offers a range of workshops for postgraduate students on topics such as managing your workload, conducting library searches, effective critical reading and note making, just to name a few. We encourage you to register to attend one or more of these free workshops to prepare yourself for postgraduate study. It is also a good opportunity to network with other postgraduate students too!
There are also online modules and resources available to you at the convenience of your own place and time as well.
Step 5: Attend orientation or welcome events
Step 6: Start classes
You’ve made it! They say every finish line is the beginning of a new race.
