Where a course is not offered online, your Program Manager or Course Coordinator will be in touch with you to speak to you directly about the many options available and support you with your decision making.
The online mode will include a range of interactions to help you connect and engage with both your studies and with other students. This can include:
- Weekly videos to outline and recap lessons
- Rich and detailed course material with narration from a lecturer
- Discussion of the key ideas of the lesson through online forums with other students
- Online drop-in sessions with a lecturer - that will be recorded and available for others
- Online learning activities for practising and demonstrating skill development
- Feedback from the lecturer as to how students are progressing.
Deadline extensions for fees and Census Date (Higher Education)
- We’ve extended the Semester 1 Census Date to 10 April 2020*. This means you have more time to evaluate your courses and have until 10 April to drop a course or take a Leave of Absence without academic penalty or financial impact. No late variation fee will apply during this time.
- We’ve further extended the deadline for fee payments until 3 April 2020*. You now have until 3 April to pay your Semester 1 fees. Please note that you now have the option to pay over bank counter of Vietcombank. View payment methods here.
* Key deadlines mentioned are subject to change due to circumstances. The changes to Census Date and payment date do not apply to block mode, intensive courses and post-graduate research - separate rules apply for these modes. Please contact RMIT Connect for more information (or if you have questions).
We’d like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during these past few challenging weeks. We also appreciate every piece of feedback we have received and encourage you to continue to express your needs and concerns with us through RMIT Connect so we can respond to every student.
As always, our goal is to make sure our students get the very best out of their learning experience with us.
Innovation emerges during challenging times and our RMIT team is dedicated to delivering an amazing learning experience for all of you.
If you have any concerns or further questions, contact your Program Managers or RMIT Connect.

Security screening and medical declaration
Students may only come to campus for the above reasons and will be subject to a security screening and an updated medical declaration at the campus gate.
As a reminder, social distancing requirements are mandatory on campus. For Vietnam, social distancing rules include a two-metre distance from others, and people can only gather in groups of up to two people. These new social distancing requirements apply from midnight 31 March, for 15 days initially.
Please note that there will be no campus access for paying fees, payment options can be found on the website.
As COVID-19 continues to spread across Vietnam, we would also remind you to take good care of yourself and strictly follow the government guidance and directives to protect yourself and people around you. You may be aware that RMIT’s Wellbeing Services have been available online to make sure students continue to receive support during this difficult time. More details about the online services can be found here. We will keep providing important updates as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it’s impacting our community in many different and difficult ways. We’re doing everything we can to adapt and provide support.
RMIT recognises that this will be an unsettling time for some students, and we encourage anyone who requires support, to access the range of free and confidential support services we have available.
