RMIT University Vietnam has several campuses for international students to study at.
In Ho Chi Minh City, the main campus is close to downtown. Today it is a rather small campus of the university and houses the English Language Learning Centre, which is mainly of interest to international students. Here you can prepare for the RMIT Higher Education Programs.
The location is very popular with everyone: it is called “The Castle” by most because the picturesque building is reminiscent of a small castle.
Just 20 minutes from central Ho Chi Minh City is the university’s largest campus, the Saigon South Campus. Every lecture and seminar room here is air-conditioned and equipped with state-of-the-art multimedia.
Built in 2004, the Hanoi campus occupies a multi-storey building on the banks of the picturesque Ngoc Khanh Lake in the government district of Vietnam’s capital. This campus is also very modern and equipped with the latest multimedia technology.

The university town of Ho Chi Minh City
Although Ho Chi Minh City is not the capital, it is the largest city in Vietnam, is considered the commercial and economic center of the country and has well over seven million inhabitants. Due to its rather rural settlement structure outside the city center, it looks more like a province than a city. Until April 1975 it bore the better known name Saigon; only after the unification of North and South Vietnam in 1976 did it get its current name.
Here in the southern part of Vietnam, the climate is very humid and tropical, and the average annual temperature is a fairly warm 27.2 °C. Between May and October is the main rainy season.
Due to the huge size of Ho Chi Minh City alone, there is a wide range of cultural activities, starting with museums such as the Historical Museum, theaters such as the City Theater and impressive architecture in the form of churches or the main post office on Dong Koi Street, designed by the famous Frenchman Gustave Eiffel during the French colonial period.
The numerous French restaurants and cafés that exist alongside the Vietnamese dining opportunities also date from this period, but other nationalities are also increasing in the restaurant sector. Most specialty restaurants are extremely expensive by Vietnamese standards, but still cheap by Western standards. Local food is usually affordable for everyone.
There are also many bars, restaurants and designer shops along Dong Khoi. Running parallel to this is Nguyen Hue Street, which always hosts a wonderful flower market during the Chinese New Year celebrations. The botanical garden with the associated zoo is also very impressive for visitors.
