English placement test

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

The placement test assesses your current level of English to determine which course level is right for you to most effectively develop your language skills. The test includes a written response (30 minutes), and an interview with a specialist tester (10-15 minutes). Placement test results are valid for six months from the date of the test to the RMIT English course start date.

You may also use an approved English test from another provider (e.g. IELTS) to enroll in RMIT English courses. These results are valid for two years from the date of the test to the RMIT English course start date. If you have submitted an approved English test result and taken a placement test, the higher result will be considered for deciding a course level.

Please talk to a Program Advisor for further information.
