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!
The Education Department will fight to ensure you receive the best possible education and receive the support you need. 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.
