Why study English online?

Online learning can be a new experience for many students, however, there are many benefits to studying English online in a live classroom setting. As an online language student, you can network and interact with student peers from Australia and right around the globe. This means you can learn about different cultures and traditions from wherever you are studying.

Online studies allow you as a student to plan study time around the rest of your daily life. You have full access to all of your study materials, which means you can choose to do extra study and homework whenever you want. An obvious benefit is you get to choose your online learning environment, for instance, you might choose to study in your home country, another country, a library or even your very own living room. This provides you with the flexibility to undertake your studies without the commute to class increasing the time you can dedicate to your studies. 

Studying online with RMIT Training provides you with access to a structured timetable and classroom activities. These will help keep you on track with your studies and keep you interacting with all your classmates in real-time.

By the time you finish your course with us, you will have a global network of friends and a strong understanding of the English language in an academic setting. 


How flexible online learning works at RMIT:


Online pathways to RMIT University

RMIT English Worldwide's English for Academic Purposes (EAP), or ELICOS, is the first step in your journey to academic success at RMIT and other universities. Upon enrolment, in your studies you may be asked to take a placement test. This means you are matched to an English level best suited to your ability. Successfully completing RMIT English Worldwide’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program allows students direct entry into RMIT University without having to sit an English language test. English for Academic Purposes is delivered online.

RMIT Training's Foundation Studies program equips international students like you with the skills and capabilities to seek entry into RMIT higher education programs. You need a minimum English language proficiency equal to IELTS 5.5 (or equivalency test) and completion of Year 11 equivalent with a minimum D average. There are four programs and each provides a direct pathway to RMIT first-year undergraduate study or its equivalent. Foundation Studies is delivered online.


Online learning support

The online learning environment is different from being in the classroom. We are here to support you with study workshops to help you get better marks, personal help to manage your wellbeing, online community activities and IT assistance.
