          Welcome to RMIT International College
          More than 25 000 international students from over 100 countries have chosen to study
          at RMIT campuses in Melbourne and elsewhere around the world. If you decide to join
          them, you will find us a welcoming and multi-cultural university, specialising in providing
          our students with a global passport to learning, work and personal and professional
          satisfaction. Since our establishment in 1887 we have become a top choice for work-
          relevant learning.

          Many students find that an RMIT pathway program such as the RMIT Foundation
          Program is the ideal bridge between school and university, as it makes the transition
          as smooth and simple as possible. The pathway programs offered by RMIT International
          College are designed to prepare you for success at RMIT University. You are not only
          guaranteed a place* in your preferred RMIT University degree, as a pathways student
          you are already an RMIT student, taught by University academics and studying in
          Melbourne’s most vibrant downtown campus.

          Unlike other generic programs, RMIT’s Foundation Studies programs have been
          carefully designed to prepare you for success in your subsequent university studies in
          business; science, engineering and technology; art, design and architecture; media
          and communication, and property and construction management. Our Foundation
          programs are designed, supported and accredited by RMIT University. They are also
          recognised by the Australian Government and other Australian and overseas
          universities. These are our most popular pathway programs for international students
          and offer different start dates to suit you. You can also study at your own pace as you
          have a choice of standard accelerated, fast track or extended program options.

          Whichever pathway you choose, you will be supported by highly experienced RMIT staff
          who understand the needs of young people studying in another country, away from
          family and friends. The University undertakes follow-up studies which show that former
          RMIT pathways students perform well in their further studies at RMIT University—in fact
          last year 90% of those who successfully completed their Foundation Program went on
          to higher education at RMIT University.

          Congratulations on considering RMIT International College. In choosing an RMIT
          pathways program you will study with a group of like-minded students focused on
          successful transition and excellence—a great choice for your future.

  Students applying for the June and July intakes must be prepared and able to take an intensive program.

For information about student visas and application deadlines, please refer to the FAQs on page 40.

            ‘foundation studies has provided me with a pathway to
            my ideal university. The knowledge and skills taught by the
            teachers are very specific to the employment market, such as
            conducting professional interviews and creating an advertising
            campaign. fortunately, the variety of courses I have undertaken
            helped me gain a better understanding of what I would like to
            do in the future.‘

Section 10          Declaration
                    I understand and accept that:
                    » RMIT University reserves the right to discontinue or alter any program, course/subject, fee, admissions requirement, staffing or other arrangement without
                       prior notice.
                    » Information I have provided on this form and during enrolment may be made available to the Australian Government, State Agencies and other designated
                       authorities under the ESOS Act 2000, ESOS Regulations 2001 and the National Code. Information about me can be disclosed without my consent where
                       authorised or required by law.
                    » RMIT University reserves the right to annually adjust program fees to take into account increases in University and program delivery costs. Changes to
                       program tuition fees will be applied at the beginning of each calendar year. RMIT will ensure that any future fee increase will be maintained below 7.5%
                       (subject to rounding). In the event of a variation between the fees on my offer letter and the approved RMIT schedule of fees and charges, the approved
                       schedule will prevail.
                    » Any application fee paid is non-refundable by RMIT University.
                    » Quoted tuition fees are an estimate based on standard full time loads and will vary depending on program and plan (i.e. the actual enrolled load). Tuition
                       fees will increase if courses need to be repeated or additional electives that will exceed the minimum requirement need to be undertaken.
                    » Tuition fees do not include the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), administrative services charges, books, equipment and other materials required
                       to undertake the program or compulsory activities where relevant, such as fieldwork, excursions or laboratory practicals. Details on additional costs can
                       be found in the program descriptions on the RMIT website (www.rmit.edu.au) and at the RMIT fee website (www.rmit.edu.au/programs/fees/other).
                    » RMIT University collects, uses and destroys my information in accordance with the university’s Privacy Policy (refer www.rmit.edu.au/privacy).
                    » RMIT University places restrictions on program and institution transfers and that I may not be permitted to change my program or institution without
                       permission.
                    I authorise the university to disclose information relevant to my application and enrolment to the university’s preferred OSHC provider and other third parties
                    for the purposes of arranging my OSHC, progressing my application and enrolment, and administering my program.
                    I give RMIT University permission to check my visa status using the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) Visa Electronic Verification Online
                    (VEVO) system.
                    I declare to the best of my knowledge that the information supplied on this application form and all supporting documentation is correct and complete, and
                    that any folio, personal statement or additional requirements supplied are my own work.
                    I acknowledge that the withholding of information or provision of incorrect or fraudulent documentation relating to my application may result in the
                    cancellation of any offer or enrolment by RMIT University, and the university may inform others, including government agencies, of this information.


                    If sponsored by a government body or private institution, I give RMIT permission to provide my sponsor with information about my application, enrolment and
                    academic progress.
