Most courses are presented in regular 3-hour classes, together with some periods of intensive teaching during the evenings, or as full day or weekend sessions at the Melbourne City campus.
The exact format varies from course to course.
Students may be required to undertake solo or group work, and independent study and project work outside of teaching periods.
Your classes will mostly be held at the RMIT's Swanston Academic Building where innovative learning spaces are interspersed with retail and social spaces resulting in a stimulating environment for business students.
Methods of assessment will vary between courses, as appropriate to learning objectives or outcomes. Assignments and projects may be based on case study scenarios, specific problems, real-world applications of theory in practice, business simulations and research. They may be undertaken in teams or individually. They will provide you with experience in writing reports and essays, research and reasoning, and oral presentations. Assignments and projects are also designed to provide you with feedback on your progress.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
