Reaching Out Support

An online community to help students find answers.

Moving to a new country to study is exciting. You'll be thinking about a lot of things to make sure you're ready for this new experience and Reaching Out is here to help you with the questions you may not know how to find.

The RMIT Training Reaching Out program is designed to give international students an opportunity to ask important questions about everyday life. See below to see how Reaching Out can support you as an RMIT student.

Reaching Out Support Hub

In the Reaching Out Support hub, our students can find:

  • Resources about life in Melbourne like finding accommodation, managing money, finding work and more 

  • Information, resources and support on wellbeing, IT and computer problems and more

  • A guide to activities and events at RMIT Training, online and around Melbourne  

  • Important updates on things like COVID-19 and how to stay healthy mentally and physically

  • A detailed IT Support page to help you with any computer problems 


RMIT Training students can also contact Reaching Out with any questions about living or studying in Australia and/or online.
