Really?

I received my offer on the 1st of this month. (In saying that, I did apply through the indigenous access scheme, and i think my application was fast tracked)

I know that applications closed on the 1st, so hopefully it won't be long til you hear back.

Keep checking your emails!!!

And your rmit 'dashboard'

My fingers are crossed for you.

Same here im 28.

For reference (when you get to enrol )I'm in B17a. You will know if we are classmates if that's the group code you have to enrol in.

When you get your offer this year, if you need to apply for vet fee help, its unavailable until Jan 1, because its changing from vet fee help to vet help loan.

We get the information sent to us on Jan 1.

I have also applied to RMIT for feb 2017, but for the City campus. I haven't heard back either. I applied late though. Fingers crossed.

@mummastudentnurseI also didn't get a place. I called them and they said that they had so many applicants that they viewed a cert III as a minimum requirement and were looking at people with a cert IV instead. Disheartening, but i'll just have to try again next round.Where you told you would be guaranteed a place if you studied a cert IV?

@sarahcip one of the lecturers at RMIT Bundoora said if you did your cert IV through them that it was a guaranteed enrolment into the diploma

It will most likely give you credits toward your diploma too.

Bonus about doing the cert 4 allied health, is that if you want/can get a position, you can work as an assistant in nursing while studying the diploma of nursing.

I'm sorry you guys Didnt get a place :(

Is there no mid year entry at city campus?

Did anyone (that didn't get a place) get an email from RMIT today saying that if they did the cert 3 in individual support through RMIT then they would be guaranteed a place on the Diploma for mid year entry?

I called and said that I already have a cert 3 in Aged Care, and they suggested that I should re do my certificate 3 with them because otherwise I wouldn't be guaranteed a place. It would cost $2.5k and i'd have to apply by tomorrow. Surely there has to be a better way than going back to study the qualification that I already have.

I have a Cert 3, soon I will have a Cert 4 and Ive been working as a PCA for 18months yet someone who has a freshly gained cert 3 through RMIT has a better chance at a place than me. Wow its a wee bit frustrating. Just got to keep trying and stay positive.

I don't have a cert 3 so put in an application based on the email from rmit and got accepted today. It's silly that they want you to redo your cert 3

I think its because the cert 3 in aged care has been superseded and is a slightly different course, module wise.

But yes it is a bit silly.

@mummastudentnurse congratulations.

We start class tomorrow
