Learning and teaching
Taught predominantly face-to-face at our Melbourne City campus, the Bachelor of Accounting also offers some online learning formats to create a productive blended learning environment. Throughout this degree, teaching styles may include guest lecturers, tutorials, class presentations, and group and student-led discussions.
You may work independently or in a team to conduct research, solve problems, analyse and respond to case studies, prepare or respond to briefs, write original research or case study reports, or participate in managing a company in a computer-based business simulation.
This style of learning is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion and apply theory to practice.
The Bachelor of Accounting incorporates the use of authentic assessment. This is an approach to assessment where you are asked to perform real-world tasks to demonstrate the application of knowledge and skills. Authentic assessment requires you to perform tasks that meet the needs of industry so that you are work ready.
Your assessment will typically come in the form of assignments and projects. These may be either research or problem based, and will provide you with experience in effectively researching, writing and presenting your findings to a range of audiences. Your assignments will help develop your skills in communication and reasoning, and will offer you the opportunity to receive feedback on your learning and skills development.
You may also be assessed through written and oral exams, presentations, and in-class activities.
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.
