From experience, we find that RMIT students are very proactive when it comes to their work. They have a good command of the English language, which enables them to communicate not only their ideas, but also understand tasks and creative ideas and briefs that are given to them. We particularly value RMIT students for their international outlook, passion and enthusiasm; they jump straight into the tasks and challenges that they are presented with.
