Celebrating 20 years in Vietnam

Our journey

Founded in Melbourne in 1887, RMIT was driven by the contribution it could make to the community. This remains a central part of our identity wherever we operate.

Our decision to open campuses in Vietnam was motivated by the same desire. In 2000, RMIT Vietnam established itself and eventually welcomed its first cohort in early 2001. 

From day one, we want to make an impactful contribution to Vietnam, especially through the lives of the young people we help shape.

Two decades on, with over 7,000 students and 14,500 alumni, our impact in Vietnam is long-lasting.
