English for University

We offer seven stages of English for University, from Beginner through to Advanced. If you already meet the academic entry requirements* for an undergraduate program but you need to improve your English you can take our direct entry English stream.

Students studying English have the opportunity to apply leadership and academic skills in activities such as researching, writing reports, presentations, teamwork, and leading discussions.


UniSTART is an informal pathway option where you will study English modules, plus undergraduate courses. UniSTART helps you prepare for university at a manageable pace, and allows you to build your confidence, by slowly increasing the number of courses you study.

Your entry point into UniSTART depends on your academic grades and English ability, so we can tailor your study to suit your needs. For example, students with IELTS (Academic) 6.0+ are exempt from the first semester of UniSTART.

IELTS test preparation

Whether you are taking an IELTS test to study at an international university in Vietnam, to study abroad, or for immigration, RMIT’s IELTS Test Preparation gives you the academic and learning skills required to excel in the IELTS test. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the IELTS test structure; how the four basic skills are tested; and be ready to take on the test with confidence.
