Student review
RMIT's Applied Science and all its related specialty degrees such as Environmental, Biological, Chemical, Physics etc are world class. The focus throughout is on practical application of scientific rigour, learning necessary skills for future work and study, and perfection in scientific writing and research. RMIT is in my opinion the best place in Melbourne to study Science.

The course was good, interactive and fun. However, there was no assistance finding placements and work which has negatively affected my work life as I don’t have the experience required for most jobs.
