Student review
There were draw backs. Materials are relatively expensive so there are some out of pocket fees. You have good resources though and about 60% of the teachers are really helpful. The course is intensive being about 20-25 hours a week so if you have to pay the bills this is also hard. Content is good but starts with very fundamental skills and you do have to fill a lot of briefs.

I really enjoyed my time at RMIT, the teachers were great, helpful, experienced. The work was practical and relevant. Really got to express our own individuality. Always felt like we had a voice, with the positive and negatives.
