Knowledge will only get you so far.
Real success comes to those who can
hit the ground running.
More than ever, employers need graduates who can
get the job done from day one. That’s why many RMIT
programs are co-designed with industry leaders to

And the collaboration doesn’t end there.

Industry mentoring programs give you the opportunity
to learn directly from a professional with a proven track
record of success.

Work-integrated learning allows you to use what you’ve
learned in the classroom in a real-life scenario. It might
be an industry internship or working on a real project
for one of RMIT’s community partners. Whether your
placement happens on site or off campus, your work will
count towards your studies.

With a focus on the real-life application of academic
knowledge, RMIT lets you test-drive your dream job.

      Advanced Diploma of Business
      (Public Relations)

      For Dan, being part of a global work-
      integrated learning project gave him both a
      valuable international perspective and the
      chance to put into action his management
      skills. He says studying PR drew together
      his varied interests and skillsets, preparing
      him for a range of real world roles.

      The best thing about PR is that if you’re
      good at it, you can get a job in any
      industry in the world because effective
      communication is key.
