Learning & Teaching

RMIT Vietnam's English courses help you to improve your English language knowledge and skills through project-based learning which focuses on the communicative goals of language learning.

We use interactive teaching methods to help students practice and retain their English. At every level, students will engage in group tasks such as working in a team on a presentation project, conducting surveys and analyzing the data, and creating videos, podcasts and websites. These activities are designed to enhance academic skills and critical thinking skills.

Throughout the program teachers review students' progress by setting regular homework tasks and ongoing assessments. Our students receive regular feedback and are supposed throughout their studies.

Industry Connections

Vietnam is a rapidly developing economy, with many domestic companies operating at an international level alongside the range of multinational operations investing in Vietnam. This means there is a wealth of opportunities for site visits, including engineering, electronics and technology, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, clothing production and agriculture. RMIT Vietnam’s strong industry connections also enable us to invite professionals from a wide range of specialisms for presentations and Q&A sessions. And of course, our own subject lecturers are always delighted to attend as guest lecturers for visiting students.
