Accuracy in Journalism
Jack, an opinion writer, submits a piece condemning affirmative action policies in the university’s admission process. He argues that such policies are racist because they consider race, rather than merit, as a criterion. Elena, the editor-in-chief, reviews the article before publication. She was unaware of the university’s use of affirmative action in admissions. She contacts the Admissions Office to inquire about the application review process, and learns that the university does not practice affirmative action. Elena believes that opinion pieces must be rooted in facts – even if the paper has made it clear that it does not endorse the viewpoints on opinion pages.
Catchy title or needless deception
Deana began pursuing a story on a pharmaceutical company which had recently come out with a possible cancer treatment. After a thorough investigation, Deana’s own research raised questions about the key drug in the treatment. In the 1970s it had been found to dangerously cut off the blood supply in pregnant women. The development of the medicine was still in its early stages and Deana wanted to make it clear in her report that it had yet to pass all the required tests. The promotions department wanted to title her piece: The Answer to Cancer.” But Deana disagreed as she felt the title didn’t agree with the tone of the article.

Very content with my learning at KCIC, learning two years of my international program here has reduced the cost of study abroad by 60%, and I am excited about my international career.
KCIC offers a different learning environment, unconventional educational methods, with opportunities combined with industrial visits, workshops, and other things, to compete at international level.
I was studying Aeronautical in a traditional college, hearing Cornerstone I shifted from Bangalore and joined here. The foundation year started with direct aerospace units, unlike other colleges.
Frequently Asked Questions
First, two years at Chennai campus is limited to 20-25 students per class. Every year we plan to recruit 250 to 300 students across all departments giving them the assured transfer to Melbourne campus. However, the final years at the Melbourne campus gives you the multicultural environment with 81,000 students studying across the RMIT.
Kings Cornerstone will provide fundamental tools and equipment required for the first two years. The first two years at Kings Cornerstone is a solid foundation to advanced learning at RMIT Melbourne. Since the final years are planned in Melbourne, the facilities provided to students are world-class. They access the same materials, tools, technology what is currently used in the industry.
Take a virtual tour to RMIT manufacturing facility that you have access during the final years at Melbourne. Check out ‘This is Engineering at RMIT’, ‘EMBER – an engineering innovation’ RMIT’s New Academic Street and Telstra Challenge Projects at RMIT.
Most students enrol in our programs seeking a continuing career in their preferred field. The return on investment is very high if you chose to work in Melbourne, London, Toronto and Dublin when compared to the salaries paid in India. So, we recommend students seeking global career to enrol. If you are looking to return to India or seeking local placements or local jobs, then you don’t need to study at Kings Cornerstone or take study abroad route, there are plenty on good local institutions in India who can help.
We are looking for a passionate learner willing to study realistically, apply reasoning and ability to learn by doing, but not someone who can memorise and write the whole book without practised knowledge. Hence, your higher secondary results do not make any weight in the selection process, except for your functional abilities. Your entry to our programs depends on your statement of purpose and a personal interview with the academic board but not your higher secondary marks. So plan well for your admission interview and rationalising SOP.
