Classes are held in intensive mode.
This is normally three or four full days per semester (mostly Saturdays). Elective subjects may be run in the evening.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, site and facility inspections, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work.
You will have access to online and digital resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
You are also supported via online resources and discussion forums between classes.
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.
