RMIT’s had their Open day 2023 on sunday 13th August and 3KND were there to broadcast live to talk with students, staff and people who are looking at studying at university.
There were so many people attended the open day today, many who will be finishing year 12 and looking to study at university but also many who wanting to continue their study and higher education. although it was a cold day it was a very vibrant atmosphere with lots to look at many of the university’s classes had tours for people to go and look at what the university has to offer.
RMIT has three locations, today we broadcast from building 5 where Ngarara Willim Centre is situated in the city but there are campuses also located in Brunswick and Bundoora.
Ngarara Willim is RMIT’s dedicated support service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. It is a place for students to engage with their education and be supported and encouraged through their studies, it’s also an opportunity to connect and meet other students from around the country. The team at Ngarara Willim offers ongoing guidance with study, living and cultural needs.
“Ngarara” means gathering and “Willim” means home in the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung language, the traditional custodians of the land where RMIT stands.
It was a great day talking and networking with lots of people and getting a understanding of what RMIT University as to offer.
We thank the Ngarara Willim staff Talia (Senior Advisor Indigenous Access Engagement Program), Tiah ( Student Mentor – Studying Youth Work & Youth Services), Renee ( Indigenous Student Advisor) and Emily ( Student Mentor – Studying Bachelor of Design in Animation and Interactive Media) for having a chat with us about their roles and what they do at RMIT.
