If you're an elite or emerging athlete or sportsperson, RMIT can help you achieve your goals - on the pitch and in the classroom.
RMIT's Elite Athlete Program helps over 200 student athletes each year to successfully balance the extra demands of elite sport with the day-to-day challenges of university life.
We understand that elite athletes require extra support, so we offer two categories of support for elite and emerging athletes, plus financial support to compete internationally and to represent RMIT at the Unisport Nationals.
RMIT's Elite Athlete Program is being revamped for 2019 with extra financial help available, as well as even more assistance with your academic and personal needs.
