RMIT calls on Hanoi visitors to “connect” for success

Tuesday, March 29, 2011 - 13:57

RMIT International University Vietnam is promoting the importance of young people taking the opportunity to "connect" with new information and opportunities at its annual Open Day to be held at the Hanoi campus this Sunday 3 April.

The event will promote the importance of making "connections" at all levels: to international careers, to professional networks and to the latest international approaches to learning and teaching.

"Since our first students arrived at RMIT Vietnam 10 years ago, we have always sought to connect Vietnamese students and their families to internationally recognised qualifications and a bigger world of connections and opportunities to help them in their lives," RMIT Vietnam's President, Professor Merilyn Liddell, said today.

"Our annual Open Day provides the best opportunity to bring together at one time a large amount of information on the many different aspects of this, for the benefit of young people and their families."

Professor Liddell said Open Day would be a chance for visitors to explore RMIT Vietnam's diverse curriculum, modern facilities and latest scholarship opportunities. The university's developments and contributions during its first 10 years of operations in Vietnam would also be discussed, along with seminars and presentations focusing on learning skills and academic and career pathways.

"Two-way sessions will give prospective students and parents a chance to connect with some of our great lecturers, and with current and former students to get more information on study experiences, industry internship opportunities, admission requirements and other important topics."

Demonstration classes would also be given by English, Accountancy and Commerce academic staff throughout the day.

"Each year RMIT Vietnam is improving and adding to what we can offer to potential students. For example, this year we've become much more firmly established at our ultra-modern new Hanoi premises, which we had only just moved into at the time of last year's Open Day. We'll also be showcasing a lot of vibrant student club activities that keep expanding every year. Our friendly volunteers will show visitors around the campus, including its modern classrooms, multi-media library, and student access labs.

"It will be well worth the visit to our Hanoi campus this year to connect with these and other worthwhile developments - which we think are providing our Hanoi students with a better foundation than ever for career and life success."
