RMIT University - Academics

Academics

RMIT is separated into two divisions: the Higher Education Division and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Division. The divisions are responsible for RMIT's 24 academic schools (21 higher education schools including a graduate/professional school, and three TAFE schools). The schools are grouped into three academic portfolios - which are referred to as colleges. The higher education schools offer both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, while the TAFE schools offer vocational certificates and diplomas. In addition to its academic colleges, the university has a dedicated research portfolio. It contains RMIT's four major research institutes, a large number of research centres and groups, and specialist research school.

The requirements for (and the conferring of) an academic degree of RMIT by its schools is determined and approved by the Academic Board. The Board consists of the Chancellery as ex officio members, and up to a further 46 members of which 34 must be elected by staff and students. Those conferred an academic degree of the university may use the post-nominal letters "RMIT" with the abbreviation of their degree title.

Famous quotes containing the word academics:

    Our first line of defense in raising children with values is modeling good behavior ourselves. This is critical. How will our kids learn tolerance for others if our hearts are filled with hate? Learn compassion if we are indifferent? Perceive academics as important if soccer practice is a higher priority than homework?
    Fred G. Gosman (20th century)

    Almost all scholarly research carries practical and political implications. Better that we should spell these out ourselves than leave that task to people with a vested interest in stressing only some of the implications and falsifying others. The idea that academics should remain “above the fray” only gives ideologues license to misuse our work.
    Stephanie Coontz (b. 1944)
