Pure theatre

Oscar-winning animator Adam Elliot’s first Capitol Theatre experience was Police Academy – but that didn’t stop him forming a lifelong attachment to this grand old dame of theatres.
"It’s a unique building and it definitely has to be saved."

The transformation issue

Education can be one of life’s most transformative experiences.

The first day you set foot on campus is often the beginning of a lifelong journey of learning, one we hope to continue with you.

For this edition of our alumni magazine, we have picked up on the theme of transformation – exploring stories of individual alumni who have changed their lives and careers through education and innovation.

RMIT exists to create transformative experiences for our students, which is why we also take a look at how RMIT continues to transform as a university for a more globally connected, digital future – including big plans for Melbourne’s Capitol Theatre.
