Our world is rapidly changing. For many of us, the scale of what is happening in the global community we have never experienced before. 2020 will be like no other year.
As we go into lockdown across the world, people are transitioning to working from home and education is moving online.
Recognising the critical importance of education, The Australian government and relevant education agencies have specified that all students - whether they live in Australia or overseas - can still attain an Australian qualification through online study.
In times like these, we need to realise that online study, technology and flexible ways of learning have been part of our lives for a long time now and are certainly part of our future.
At RMIT we don’t want our students to miss out on a semester or a year of study if we can help it. We want our students and global community to continue on their education journey as best they can. In over 100 years we have not stopped. We don’t want you to now. We are in this together.
We’re one of Australia's original tertiary institutions. We’re a global university of technology, design and enterprise and a world leader in many subjects [HJ1] – RMIT knows the importance of providing excellence in education across any platform.
Hundreds of our courses are already available online. We’ve done our best to move the remaining courses online quickly, while not compromising on the quality of education and student outcomes.
These are some of the many benefits of studying online and continuing on with your education:
You can attend classes easily from wherever you are.
You have more control over the time you spend studying.
You continue to be informed and access RMIT’s global knowledge.
You connect with other students and form valuable networks and communities
In today’s workforce, one thing employers are looking for is the ability for staff to manage well through change and adapt to a new environment
With the world-changing, our ways of living are changing too. The importance of using technology to stay connected digitally has never been more important. Studying online supports this important connection to the community - both locally and globally.
As part of RMIT’s flexible study options we’re developing important connection points with our students that include:
- Weekly videos to outline and recap lessons
- Discussion with students through online collaboration tools and forums
- Online drop-in sessions with lecturers
- Online learning activities to demonstrate skills and receive feedback
This means you’ll get the real-life experience and vocational skills that set RMIT graduates apart.
RMIT welcomes you to our world of online study, no matter where in the world you are. We welcome you to an engaged digital community, where we connect and learn together, no matter where you are in the world.
We’re in this together and we won’t let this situation slow us down. Continue your education online today, with RMIT..
