Get ready to apply

Take a minute to read the detailed steps below to find out how to apply.

Step 1: Prepare your documents

Depending on the program you are applying for, you may need to provide supporting documents and information like:

  • Employment history
  • Previous study
  • Personal details
  • Academic records and statement of completion
  • Evidence of English proficiency
  • Supporting documents like a CV; personal statement; or folio

You may be required to complete a selection task which might include an interview, folio, pre-selection kit and/or supplementary information forms. Please check the entry requirements section of the program you are applying for.

If you have any questions about the program you’re interested in, please get in touch with Study@RMIT before you submit your application.

Step 2: Complete your application

As soon as you are ready to apply, register online to start your application.

Want to know when you should submit by?

Application closing dates are listed on Direct application dates.  We recommend you apply early, so you don’t miss out on preferred classes. If you’ve put in multiple preferences in your application, they will be assessed concurrently.  

Remember to jump on your computer to apply. It’s much easier than your phone or tablet, and better if you have documents to upload.

Don’t have all the required documents?

If you’re in a hurry to meet the application deadline, you can submit your application without having all your supporting documentation ready. Remember to upload your documents as soon as you have them, as your application cannot be assessed until you have submitted all required documentation.

Step 3: Track your application

Once submitted, your application status will change to ‘Under assessment’. If you’ve have submitted all the required documentation, you can expect an outcome within 1–4 weeks. If a Selection Officer requires further information from you, a request email will be sent to your registered address and you’ll be notified on My Dashboard.

If you’ve applied for a commonwealth supported place (CSP) and the program requires ranking as part of the assessment, a ranking email will be sent to you to advise what date you can expect to receive an outcome.

Step 4: Get your application outcome

At RMIT, there are three application outcomes that you may receive:

  1. Conditional Offer: You may receive a conditional offer if your full offer is subject to the provision of documents to meet the entry requirements for the program you have applied for. If you are a current RMIT student, your conditional offer may be reliant on completion of your current studies. You are not required to submit documents in this instance.
  2. Full Offer: Once you have received a full offer, you will be sent a notification via email and My Dashboard for you to accept your offer.
  3. Deny: If you receive a deny outcome, you will receive a notification via email and My Dashboard containing the reason why your application was unsuccessful at this time.
