Sixty years with Thailand celebrated
RMIT English Worldwide (REW) has helped celebrate 60 years of bilateral relations between Thailand and Australia.
REW is a division of RMIT Training, a company wholly owned by RMIT University, and has been operating in the Thai region for almost 10 years.
Rachel Holthouse, CEO, RMIT Training, and Grant Taylor, Commercial Director, REW, attended an Australian alumni event hosted by Austcham, The Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored by REW, in Bangkok.
The event included an afternoon tea and screening of the film Red Dog and engaged alumni who have been in Australia and students who are planning to study abroad.
More than 100 alumni and their friends attended, along with representatives from Austrade and the Australian Embassy, including James Wise, the Australian Ambassador to Thailand.
Ms Holthouse said REW allowed students to undertake quality English language training in Australia at its Melbourne Language Centre, or in Thailand through partner, REW Bangkok.
"Regardless of their location, students are taught the academic and language skills they need to succeed in further study using our world-class curriculum, English Academic Passport," she said.
"English Academic Passport is unique to REW and is the result of extensive consultation with students, English language teachers and university lecturers.
"The course content and assessment has been designed to meet the needs of international students on a pathway to university degrees and other higher education programs."
John Tyler, Director, REW Bangkok, said the level of English language skills used by alumni at the event demonstrated the high level of teaching that students received.
