Sponsorship Development

The Sponsorship Development Team (SDT) collaborates with Colleges and Schools, Central Administrative Units and International Recruitment staff to ensure the end to end management of Sponsored students at RMIT.

SDT liaises closely with Foreign Embassies and Consulates to facilitate Sponsorship admission, academic monitoring, payment of fees and overall management of Sponsored students.

The team manages the contract and administration of the Australian Government’s Australia Awards program.

We liaise with various internal and external stakeholders to assist in the development of strategic initiatives to increase RMIT University’s international profile and expand its international operations.

SDT is comprised of specialised staff, including an international sponsored students’ admissions team.
