Make the most of studying at RMIT

Education Department

Welcome to the Education Department

The Education department is concerned with both the quality of your education at RMIT University and broader government policies around higher education. This department aims to make sure students are consulted and informed on issues that affect the education that they pay so much money for. The Education Officer also works closely with RUSU’s Campaigns Officer and Student Rights Officers in discussing RMIT policy issues that impact students, including Assessment policy, special consideration, group work and more!

If you are interested in becoming involved in the Education Department or wish to let us know about something you're not happy with at RMIT, please email us at

This past year, has been a pretty strange, upsetting year for all of us with the COVID-19 Crisis. The department has been working to support students through this crisis, and will continue to do so throughout 2021. No student should have their education adversely affected or its quality degraded because of the changes. The Education Department will fight to ensure you still receive the best possible education and receive the support you need with everything going on. We fight for fairer assessments, exams, special consideration, and much more.

If you are interested in making a positive change in your program, join your program’s Student/Staff Consultative Committee (SSCC). Every program at RMIT should have an SSCC. The SSCCs purpose is to provide student representatives an opportunity to present feedback on academic programs gathered from their peers to the relevant program staff. Participation in the SSCCs helps to ensure a high-quality teaching and learning experience at RMIT. If you are not interested in being on the committee, you can still speak to the nominated students on it and provide them with your feedback.

RUSU runs a summit for SSCC representatives each year to make sure you get the most out of your role.
