Course structure

When you enrol in an IELTS Pathway Course at RMIT, you will take a placement test to identify the correct level for you. This will help you to achieve the test result you are aiming for. 

If your official IELTS Test result does not meet the outcome band score of your course, you can repeat one course free of charge meeting these criteria:

  • A minimum of 85% attendance
  • Completion of 80% of homework assignments, including extensive reading, online study, and uploaded writing tasks on time
  • Passing the speaking and writing end-of-course exams for the course
  • IELTS Test result must be submitted within 3 months of the final day of the course
