RMIT Training welcomes design students from Japan

Trident College of Design students at Orientation Day. 

In February, RMIT Training welcomed four students from Trident College of Design, Nagoya.

For six weeks the group will undertake a unique program at RMIT Training, being a combination of Foundation Studies and English language studies. 

Accompanied by the Dean of Design and Languages, Mr Sakamoto, the students took part in Orientation Day activities with other Foundation Studies students commencing their first semester of study in Melbourne.

Activities included visiting the health and wellbeing and student experience stalls to learn about services available to students, as well as sightseeing opportunities in Melbourne. A highlight was a welcome barbecue held in the courtyard garden. 

The students study Manga and Interior, Graphic and Illustration Design in Japan and will join three different classes during their time at RMIT Training: Foundation Design – Essential Principles and Elements, Drawing and Production Skills and Design Process and Practice.  

English language support will also be provided in the form of customised classes with Study Support teachers as well as observations of elementary level English for Academic Purposes (EAP) classes.  

RMIT English Worldwide (REW) Business Development Executive, Anna Brown, supervised the group as they explored RMIT Training’s facilities during their first week in Melbourne.
“Working with Trident College is a great example of international collaboration, and RMIT Training looks forward to exploring more opportunities to provide overseas students with our Pathway experience.”

Trident College has a long relationship with Foundation Studies, which has resulted in many students visiting Melbourne to engage with the FS program through its scholarship awards.

RMIT Foundation Studies is designed to provide international and high school students with a direct academic entry pathway to RMIT University. 

It offers four streams: Art, Design and Architecture; Business; Science, Engineering and Health; and General, which allows students to choose subjects from any stream.
