About the Scholarship Sponsor:

The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (often known as RMIT Institution) is an Australian research university with its main campus in Melbourne. The extensive campus and the high caliber of the institution’s professional and technical training programs, research, and other offerings have made it well-known around the world. Francis Ormond laid the groundwork for the school in 1887. It was originally established as a night school where students may study a variety of subjects, including the arts, sciences, and technologies. The term “public university” was first used to describe the school in 1992. Nearly 87,000 students enroll each year at RMIT University, with 34,347 coming from other countries to study on campus or at one of RMIT’s offshore locations. The university generates $54.1 million in revenue through research.

In terms of the study of art and design, the university is ranked eleventh worldwide. RMIT University’s main campus can be found in Melbourne’s central business district. As a result of its presence in the oldest section of the city, the campus holds a great degree of heritage interest. The Bundoora Campus and the Brunswick Campus are two more locations that the university maintains in Australia. Moreover, it has two main campuses, two regional offices, and a hub in Spain. Since that time, there have been a total of 87 buildings erected to the campus. One of the distinguishing features of RMIT University is the lack of institutionalized discrimination. Six city blocks are devoted to the university, bringing the total size to over 720,000 square meters.

More than a hundred and thirty nations are represented among RMIT University’s alumni association’s over 437,000 members. Some famous people who went to this university include the famous Australian artist Charles Billich, the famous Australian movie director James Wan, the famous Australian novelist James Wan, the famous Australian charity worker Jim Stynes, and the famous Australian animator Felix Colgrave. Mixed learning, which involves both online and face-to-face training, has been given by RMIT for some time. Through Canvas, our online learning and instruction platform, students have the ability to participate in online lectures and tutorials, providing for continuous education no matter the location in which they find themselves. You will join a vibrant online community at RMIT, where students and faculty from all over the world may interact with one another and learn from one another’s experiences. Bundoora, in the far northwest suburbs of Melbourne, is home to several of RMIT’s health, biomedical science, and engineering departments.
