Student experiences with RMIT Foundation Studies


Putu Sarmadharti Pradaswari

I was studying in the Art, Design and Architecture stream. The extraordinary things about RMIT Training were the fantastic teachers and the engaging program. The lecturers are very patient and helpful in guiding us, international students, to accomplish maximum performance. The art and design program itself provides a wide range of tasks that enhance our skills and understanding of the subject. Through projects and class discussions, I was able to develop different ideas and learn about the design process thoroughly.
