Description

Gama-dji Orientation helps you get off to a great start at RMIT University! Gama-dji, pronounced “Gama-gee”, means emerge in the local Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung language of the Kulin Nations.

Ngarara Willim have developed a specific Orientation Program designed to provide commencing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students the opportunity to become familiar with RMIT, Ngarara Willim and our support services and other commencing and continuing students.


It’s to give you a head start on everyone else who will be commencing with you the following week. It’s a great way to meet other students, learn study skills, explore your culture and get to know RMIT and Melbourne.


We run Gamadji a week before the RMIT University Orientation to ensure you will be comfortable and less stressed for the beginning of your academic journey and that your experience with us here at RMIT and Ngarara will be positive.

By attending you will know:

  • That your enrolment is finalised,
  • That you have a tutor who will be able to help you from week 1,
  • That you are connected to wifi, and know how to use MyRMIT and Canvas,
  • That you can log into your emails,
  • That you know where classes are and
  • That you know how to budget for the semester
  • You know where to get help when you need it!

It is essential that you attend if you have come through the Indigenous Access Program or will be accepting an Indigenous specific scholarship.
