Taking the next step with your offer
You’ve received an offer from RMIT. What’s next?
Step 1: Accept your offer
Congratulations on your offer! Now you need to let us know how you want to proceed with your offer.
Log in to your My dashboard to either:
Accept your offer
Decline your offer
You may have some questions about how the offer process works. We've outlined answers below to the most commonly asked questions.
If you’ve received a conditional offer, you must wait until you have a full offer before you can accept. Once your conditions have been met, you will be issued a full offer.
Once you accept the offer of your preferred program, the other offers will be automatically withdrawn.
Once you accept an offer for one preference, your other preferences, which may be under assessment, will automatically be withdrawn. You may want to wait until you have received an outcome for all your preferences to decide on accepting the right program for you.
Once you have an outcome for your preference(s), it is strongly recommended that you accept your offer as soon as possible. Otherwise, you may miss out on your preferred classes or have your offer lapse. If you haven’t already accepted before the deadline for your program, we will send you an reminder email.
If you choose to decline your offer, we won’t be able to reactivate your offer if you change your mind. You will need to re-apply for the same program for the next intake.
Step 2: Complete your enrolment
Semester 2 2018 enrolments will open on 1 May 2018. From this date, you will be able to select the courses (subjects) you want to study.
To help you select your courses, have a look at your enrolment program structure. It will outline the courses you must complete to meet the academic requirements of your program. When you are ready to enrol, follow the enrolment 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 schedule the 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 higher education class timetables to see when you have to complete each of the above steps. At this point, you may also consider applying for credit, if you have completed previous study or have any relevant work experience.
Step 4: Prepare yourself for study
You can access our Study and Learning Centre which 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 time and place 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.
