The Practice Research Symposium (PRS) is a twice-yearly gathering of research candidates enrolled at RMIT in disciplines associated with Architecture and Design. The PRS’ prime purpose is to be the tangible focus of a learning community - its home, so to speak. As we all know, people learn more from each other than they do from abstract structures, and the PRS is first and foremost a gathering of peers.

The PRS is run in June and October each year.


Examinations are open to the public and run Thursday 31 May – Friday 1 June
