Gone are the days when a single university degree could be relied upon to stay relevant for a person's working life. In a fast-paced world, can we really expect the skills and knowledge we learned in our early 20s to still be relevant long into our future careers?

RMIT Online will help you keep your skill set relevant and grow your potential from anywhere you like - whether in person or online.

Our courses are 100% online and backed by RMIT University, which has gained a worldwide reputation for effective industry-driven training by expertly navigating the world of work for decades.

Our research shows that, now more than ever, there’s a great need for highly skilled individuals to sustain our nation’s economic recovery.

RMIT Online programs are designed to guide career-driven individuals to gain the real-world skills they need for the jobs of tomorrow.

What’s the difference between RMIT and RMIT Online?

The difference between RMIT and RMIT Online is in the mode of delivery – one is on campus; the other is online.

Studying at an RMIT campus is a good option if it’s convenient for your lifestyle and you’d like to attend classes in person.

Alternatively, you can choose to study your degree via RMIT Online, which allows you more flexibility and the ability to study when and where it suits you. Online study is a great choice if you want to keep working full time while studying, prefer studying at home, or simply don’t live close to an RMIT campus.

Whichever option you choose, you can still expect the same quality of education, engagement and support.

5 reasons to choose RMIT Online for your postgraduate degree

Deciding to pursue a postgraduate degree can be a daunting task, but choosing the right institution can make all the difference. With so many options available, RMIT Online stands out as a top choice. Here are five reasons why you should consider RMIT Online for your postgraduate studies.

Learn real-world skills from industry experts

RMIT University has always worked alongside industry and business experts to upskill graduates for constantly changing workplaces. It’s known for its hands-on, job-ready programs and strong industry connections.

RMIT Online extends these partnerships, to supply the demand for emerging skills and to bolster the future employee pipeline.

We work with over 80 industry partners – including the likes of Adobe, Salesforce, Accenture, REA Group, Apple and IBM – to prepare our students with relevant skills in new technologies and business approaches.

We’ve drawn on the insights of these leading companies to design a number of RMIT Online programs such as the Graduate Certificate in Workforce Transformation, developed with Deloitte and Workday.

Our industry connections mean our programs remain relevant. That’s why our graduates are prepared to tackle real-world business challenges – now and into the future.
