Before you arrive here’s some information to help you get a great start at RMIT and learn more about living in Melbourne.
Connect with other students
Making connections is essential when you move to a new country. Before you leave your home country the Mates at RMIT program can link you to a current student known as a Mentor who will be able to answer your questions about Melbourne and RMIT; find out how to get a mentor.
Mentors will invite you to activities specifically organised for new students so that you can meet others and be part of the community; check out our Facebook page to find out more about Mates at RMIT.
Organise your money
Our finance section has the information you need when it comes to money, find out:
- how to open a bank account
- about the costs of setting up home and living expenses
- what you need to start a job, and
- how you can save money.
Set up your accommodation
We know that finding your accommodation will be your top priority once you move to Melbourne. We recommend that you organise temporary accommodation first to allow yourself the chance to become familiar with your new surroundings and find the most suitable long-term accommodation.
