RMIT October intake 2025, RMIT University Application Deadline 2025-2026

Starting on 29 July 2024 applications will be accepted for the 2025 intake. While some programs will accept applications after this time, they could close at any point following the official application deadline. Please note that enrollments are subject to space and availability and that some qualifications have their closing dates.

Thus, candidates are urged to submit their applications as soon as possible. International students are highly encouraged to submit their applications by the deadlines suggested for their nation or region. Based on the expected processing periods for each country’s visas, they may be earlier than the course’s end date. You will also need to allocate more time if you need a student visa, which is another necessity.

Important deadlines and dates for coursework for undergraduate and postgraduate students attending RMIT campuses in Australia in 2025. Students taking regular semester-based classes in higher education are subject to these dates. Students pursuing an associate’s degree in business, a paralegal certificate, or a diploma in commerce must also adhere to the dates for further education listed on this page.
