Hello beautiful and creative Fashion & Textiles Students! I am Ambika, your RUSU Brunswick Coordinator. I would like to welcome you all to RUSU Brunswick Department with Ravi, your Brunswick Representative. The multicultural campus of Fashion and Textiles with its spacious study area evokes creativity. The open green outdoors and delicious food at Refuel (Building 514, Level 1) makes it a comfortable and enjoyable space to work and chill. Brunswick campus encompasses creative students from different backgrounds pursuing diverse fashion & textiles courses such as:
Also, keeping current COVID-19 safety measures in mind, the course structure is a blend of both offline and online lectures, tutorials and workshops.
RUSU Brunswick focusses on improving campus community and student engagement this year. We are working to host exciting events explicitly designed for Fashion and textiles students on and off campus for 2021. We have also created a Brunswick Campus Facebook and Instagram Page that gives regular updates and posts for Brunswick students. Although COVID-19 has put a halt to a lot of our on-campus plans for semester one, we remain an active department at RUSU, advocating for student rights, improving work integrated learning and supporting our students with required resources. We are here for you! If you ever see us on campus, feel free to come and say hi! And if you have any questions, student concerns or ideas on how to improve campus life – you can email me, or Brunswick rep and we’ll happily organise a meeting with you.

Here are few links of student support resources which will help you through your academic journey at RMIT University.
The RMIT Association of Fashion and Textile Students (RAFTS) aims to build a community for undergraduates, postgraduates, research and vocational students enrolled (or with an interest) in Fashion and Textiles. By providing a fashion and textile platform, connecting different fashion and textile programs we hope to achieve the goals of expanding social and business networks raising awareness of upcoming projects and assignments in different programs stimulating exchange of knowledge of different programs, and creating a meeting point for current and alumni students.
This semester, we plan to have small classes for masking making and a virtual talk/discussion with a sustainable stylist from Brunswick.
By becoming a financial member for the year, you ensure that the RUSU can continue to make a difference. RUSU is a not-for-profit organisation, so you can be sure that all monies raised go towards improving the lives of RMIT students - serving more students, more often.
