In this advanced diploma, you will undertake structured learning activities and authentic assessments in a largely face-to-face setting.
In the latter part of your study you will then have the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge acquired to the real-world tasks undertaken as part of an industry-based practical placement.
In addition to the practical placement opportunity, RMIT offers a variety of other learning and teaching approaches including seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions and project work.
We offer a blended learning model with opportunities for both face-to-face and live online classes. Most of your face-to-face learning will take place in RMIT's Swanston Academic Building which features innovative learning spaces interspersed with retail and social spaces resulting in a stimulating environment for students.
Through RMIT University’s online learning portal, you will be able to access online learning resources, collaborate with teachers and fellow students, and access your student email account.
Educational software, the Learning Hub, resources and printers are accessible on campus via the RMIT wireless network using your own laptop, tablet or smart phone or via computer facilities on-campus. You will be able to access the same software from home using myDesktop.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes supervised tests, reports, oral presentations, group projects, and practical assignments.
Students can choose between full-time or part-time on-campus/blended classes, or part-time online only classes delivered in the evenings.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
