RGIT provides good assistance and support services for international students on a range of matters including general welfare, visas and coping with change in lifestyle.

What’s On?

Through our website and social media, we keep you posted on all the exciting, student-relevant activities happening in and around Hobart. Read Evolve, your student magazine, which can also be found in the library and recreation areas on campus.
