Received a postgraduate study offer?

Here's how to take the next step with your offer.

Step 1: Accept your offer

Congratulations on your offer! Now you need to let us know how you want to proceed.

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Once you accept the offer of your preferred program, the other offers will be automatically withdrawn.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you accept an offer for one preference, your other preferences, which may be under assessment, will automatically be withdrawn.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 your offer may lapse. If you haven’t already accepted before the deadline for your program, we will send you a reminder email.

You 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.

You can only defer to the next intake once you have accepted your offer. That way, we can keep your place for the next intake. Learn more about deferring your offer.

Step 2: Complete your enrolment

Semester 1 2020 enrolments open on 1 October 2019. From this date, you will be able to start enrolling in your courses (subjects) to become an official RMIT student.

After enrolment opens, we will send you an email with instructions on how to enrol. Your program may require you to attend a compulsory information session to help you choose your courses, so please read our email for enrolment requirements.

Once you've read the email thoroughly, you can follow the Higher education enrolment guide for a step-by-step guide. If you are thinking of deferring your studies to Semester 1 2021, you can do so at this stage. 

If you get stuck during the enrolment process, you can refer to our Enrolment Online guide. Alternatively, you can contact RMIT Connect for assistance.

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:

  1. Plan your timetable
  2. Enter your class preference
  3. 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

There’s always so much to do at RMIT on campus and off campus. Make sure you attend your College’s or School’s orientation event, as well as other university welcome events. Discover upcoming events for students.

Step 6: Start classes

You’ve made it! They say every finish line is the beginning of a new race.
