RMIT Training welcomes international students back to Melbourne campus

As Melbourne continues to take daily toward COVID normal, RMIT Training is excited to welcome back Foundation Studies and RMIT English Worldwide students to our Bourke Street campus and celebrate what we hope is the beginning of many events back on campus in 2021.

RMIT Training’s Director Student Experience and Wellbeing, Elise Fraser, said: 

These events are RMIT Training’s contribution to bringing life back to the city of Melbourne. Many of our students haven’t left their homes, sometimes very small apartments, for long periods of time during lockdown. These events aim to be an excellent opportunity for students, and their parents, to see that Melbourne and Australia are managing the COVID safety and recovery extremely well and we hope these events prove just how “close to normal” life in Melbourne has become.

What’s on and when are the events being run? 

Our events are registered COVIDSafe by the RMIT Health and Wellbeing protocols. This means we will be inviting groups of students to engage with teachers, staff, other students and special activities from Tuesday 11 May to Friday 14 May. 

All students attending any event will receive: 

  • A special RMIT Training gift bag filled with lots of free stuff
