Selection tasks

For some RMIT programs you may need to attend an interview or submit a folio of your creative work to apply. Some courses have extended their submission dates, check out what is still available to apply for.

Are you an international student?

Are you an international student applying via VTAC? Change of Preference and Offer round dates are different for local and international students. Please check RMIT’s International VTAC Info page for further information.

How preferences work

Don't make the mistake of listing your course preferences in the order you think you will get into them. You’ll only receive an offer for the course listed highest on your preference list, so always put your dream course first.

Graduating from a SNAP school?

Students from a SNAP school who applied and were endorsed by their school will receive extra consideration for any RMIT course in their VTAC preference list. For more information head to our SNAP page.
