RMIT Vietnam, an entity of RMIT University, has campuses in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi since 2001. We provide internationally recognized, high-quality education and professional training for students, clients, and the community, and assist in the development of human resources capability in Vietnam and the region by hosting students from Australia and many other countries.

AT RMIT Vietnam we are constantly on the lookout for hourly rate academic staff to support us in the delivery of our programs across our University. Our opportunities vary with regard to the specific background and expertise required. Hours also vary from teaching one class per semester (6) hours to teaching 4-5 classes per semester (approx. 25-30 hours per week) and so some of our current hourly rate staff will have time to also fulfill another role outside of RMIT Vietnam. If you think that you have prior or current teaching experience along with the expertise and technical background we need, then we are seeking your expression of interest to join our vibrant and culturally diverse Schools to join us in making a significant impact on the future of learning and teaching in Vietnam.

Although our needs and vacancies regularly change, there are opportunities that exist across our Schools. Please refer to further information about the Schools and their programs as follows
