English placement test

Your first step to studying English at RMIT University Vietnam is to register for an official English placement test.

This test assesses your speaking, writing, grammar, and listening skills to decide which course level is right for you, and will best help you achieve the test result you are aiming for.

English placement test results are valid for six months. If you have already taken an IELTS or TOEFL test, you don’t need to take a placement test if your IELTS/TOEFL certificate is less than two years old. Please contact a Student Recruitment Consultant for further details.

Important: If you have presented a qualified English test result (i.e. IELTS or equivalent) and then take an RMIT English for University program, the recent result from the English for University program may be considered to supersede the earlier English result. Please talk to one of Student Recruitment Consultants for further information.
