Semester 1 2022 BALLOT dates & other info

*This post is only relevant to students enrolled/enrolling in either COMM2625 Media 3 or COMM2627 Media 5 in semester 1, 2022. It does not apply to students enrolling in COMM2624 Media 1]

Allocation to media studios (for Media 3 and Media 5 courses) in Semester One 2022 will be determined by a balloting process in January. Your studio will be your Media 3 or 5 course. There will be around 17 studios on offer and you make your preference selection based on the studios description book available when the ballot opens.

Communication about the ballot will be via student email to correctly enrolled Media 3 and Media 5 students but also posted here on the MediaFactory studios page.

We’re planning for the majority of studios to be taught face-to-face on RMIT’s city campus. There will also be a small number of studios that are offered as online only. You will need to identify which you are available for at the time of balloting.

PLEASE FILL OUT THIS BRIEF FORM to give us an idea of whether you are planning to study face to face on campus or online in 2022 – even if you aren’t completely certain at the moment it helps our planning if we have some idea of what issues students are currently weighing up in relation to this.

It is crucial to note that the ballot process is completely separate to myTimetable – you can not select studios via Timetable preferencing. The Studio Co-Coordinators determine allocations and advise students of these and also arrange for that allocation to be entered in myTimetable (where it cannot be changed).

If you miss completing the ballot you can still do a studio but will be automatically allocated to one where there is a space. It will not be possible to change that allocation.

Balloting will only be accepted for students correctly enrolled at the time in COMM2626 Media 3 and COMM2628 Media 5 in semester one, 2022.

These are the relevant dates for this process for semester one in 2022:

  • Wed 19 Jan (5pm) – Studio Description Book and Media studio timetable sent/available and BALLOT OPENS
  • Tues 25 Jan (11.59pm) – Ballot closes
  • Thur 27 Jan (5pm) – Students advised of studio allocations [these will be automatically entered in your myTimetable]
  • Fri 28 Jan – Timetable preferencing for your OTHER COURSES opens

Don’t forget to occasionally check in on your RMIT emails over the break.

For any questions please email direct both of the current Studio Co-Coordinators
