Australian Student Visas

RMIT's online Master of Engineering (Management) does not meet Australian student visa requirements. For an Australian student visa, you must have an on-campus place in a program of study. For more details on RMIT's on-campus programs visit rmit.edu.au.




A critical part of delivering high-level coursework online is providing you with a consistent approach to assessment. You will be assessed on how well each of the 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:

  • Quizzes;
  • Case studies;
  • Presentations;
  • Project analysis exercises; and
  • Contribution to online discussion.

As you may be 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 throughout the teaching period via online forums on practical exercises and by individual consultation.
