What our students are saying

Seb Fox

Bachelor of Environment and Society

This program is about teaching the systemic nature of the environment, whether it’s the political, economical or social. All these things play huge roles in influencing our environmental outcomes.

Tayla Fairthorne

Bachelor of Environmental Science/Environment and Society

I chose RMIT for its practical components after consulting students from RMIT and other universities. RMIT has a strong emphasis on being work ready and provides a number of opportunities for you to make industry links.

Emma Spano

Bachelor of Urban Planning and Environment

Urban planning inspires me to think differently about the built environment and believe change is possible. For people who have been in the workplace for a long time already, I would really encourage them to undertake further study.
