Student review
Intensive but it is enjoyable and always interesting because each tutor brings something new to the curse. This is because RMIT encourages industry professionals to teach, so the course is extremely realistic and relevant.

Student review
The Bachelor and Masters course at RMIT are entirely theoretical and in absolutely no way set up students for practise to work in the real world. There is an extreme imbalance in study-life balance and I have seen students mentally absued and critised to the point they develop anxiety depression and on numerous occasions break into tears during studio presentations. Students spend a combined minimum of 5 years between the Bachelor and Masters course and at the end of it most of them do not know what the size of a standard brick is or how a building goes together. I do not recommend this course.
