Program and course life-cycle instructions and forms

This page is under review, as a new program approval process is being developed.

Please note:

  • Program and course approval processes are currently under review. For RMIT accredited program proposals (i.e. higher education programs), staff should seek advice on the current proposal approval process from their College or RMIT Vietnam Academic Development or Academic Services Group.
  • Most of the instructions previously on this page have been rescinded: only the vocational education program approval instruction and the discontinuation and transition instructions are still relevant.
  • Any program proposals requiring creation/change of a program structure in SAMS must be submitted using the Higher Education Program Approval Template (HEPAT).
