RMIT University Vietnam

Skilled hand and cultivated mind


RMIT University Vietnam is a campus of Melbourne-based University RMIT - Australia's biggest tertiary institution. The largest offshore campus in the world, RMIT Vietnam offers programs from business and management to design and micro engineering, and boasts an impressive range of extra-curricular activities that encourage students to break new ground in their areas of interest.

RMIT Vietnam is committed to providing quality education. Programs and courses at RMIT International University Vietnam are identical to those at RMIT University, Melbourne. The students at RMIT Vietnam are awarded an RMIT Melbourne degree on satisfactory completion of their program of studies. The learning objectives, course and curriculum materials, assessment tasks, and electronic resources are prepared for use in Vietnam by staff of RMIT Melbourne, meaning the academic's role at RMIT Vietnam is focused on adding value to the teaching and learning process through creative facilitated learning more than developing/delivering the traditional university lecture style approach.

Academic staff employed at RMIT International University Vietnam work in collaboration with academic staff from RMIT University Melbourne to customise the materials that are prepared in Melbourne for off-shore delivery, and to facilitate the teaching and learning processes at RMIT Vietnam. The teaching model at RMIT Vietnam favours small group interaction, face-to-face discussions and tutorial groups, as well as facilitated on-line and self-directed learning by students.
