Career avenues exist in Australia and overseas in the development sector.
RMIT graduates have worked with a wide range of development agencies:

You can also use this program as the first step in advancing to PhD research.
You will be able to network with fellow students, experts and industry partners, which can open employment opportunities soon after, or even before you graduate.
International development students have undertaken industry placements with local and international non-government organisations, the former Australian Youth Ambassadors for Development program (now called Australian Volunteers for International Development) and the many different agencies of the United Nations (UN).
Most students have conducted placement and projects within the Asia-Pacific, but some have also worked in Africa, South America and Europe.
RMIT has partnerships with RedR, as well as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
