English language requirements
A critical part of delivering high-level coursework online is providing students with a consistent approach to assessment. Students are assessed on how well each of their course learning outcomes are met, in alignment with the overall program learning outcomes.
Course assessments will occur across a seven-week teaching period and are designed to progressively build in weight over time, with each linking back and building on the last.
Examples of common assessments may include group and individual tasks, such as:
- Analysis of case studies;
- Costing exercises;
- Reflective writing tasks;
- Proposals and reports; and
- Interactive contribution to online discussions.
As many of our students are working full-time and have professional commitments during the week, course assessments are usually due on Sunday or Monday evenings, allowing optimum time over the weekend to finesse for submission.
Rich feedback will be provided to students throughout the teaching period via online forums on practical exercises and by individual consultation.
International students are required to provide current evidence of English language proficiency for admission to RMIT University.
You can provide your results from one of these three options:
- an accepted English language proficiency test
- an accepted English language provider, or

- IELTS (Academic): minimum overall band of 6.5 (with no individual band below 6.0)
- TOEFL (Paper Based Test): minimum score of 580 (TWE 4.5)
