Studying overseas is an enriching and rewarding experience. It gives you the chance to challenge yourself, develop new skills, learn another language and see the world from a fresh perspective.

Overseas study is a great way to build your global networks and boost career opportunities. Many employers seek graduates with international experience, as it demonstrates independence, ambition and adaptability. It can give you the competitive edge you need in landing that dream job.


Global travel opportunities

Whether you’re a vocational education, undergraduate, or postgraduate student, there’s a global opportunity for you.

Expand your horizons with RMIT

Our global networks give you the opportunity to enhance your education or research experience. 

Where will RMIT take you?

Take a cyclo ride through the narrow streets of Ho Chi Minh City, explore international business in Israel, study architecture in imperial Vienna, learn about fashion and style in Helsinki, or study landscaping in Mexico. You can go practically anywhere in the world, and it can count towards your course.

Choose from cross-campus study, semester exchanges, short-term study tours and international work experience.

A life changing experience in Ho Chi Minh City

Joshua Barker spent a semester of his degree immersed in the culture of Vietnam while working on real industry projects. 

Complete a semester overseas

Spending a semester or year abroad and immersing yourself in another culture is one of the best ways to learn, experience life with a different flavour, and make friends from all over the world.

If you’re seeking a highly independent and inspiring learning experience, then completing a semester overseas may be right for you. You will discover a fresh perspective, develop your personal and professional skills, expand networks and create new friends — all while gaining credit towards your program.

All RMIT postgraduate, undergraduate and vocational education students can apply, and financial support is available for many programs. Our Education Abroad team can provide personal advice and help you get started.

Cross-campus study at RMIT Vietnam

Immersed yourself in a cultural experience while studying at one of RMIT's Vietnam campuses. Cross-campus study involves studying at our Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi campuses for a semester or a full year. This option offers academic, personal and professional benefits.

Study abroad with student exchange

Student exchange is where you study at one of our partner universities for one semester or a full year, gaining credit towards your course. You can also pick an institution without an exchange agreement with RMIT if it offers courses in your discipline and accepts Study Abroad students.

International work experience 

RMIT's International Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers you the chance to do a six- to twelve-month paid internship with global companies in Europe, Asia and North America.

Your international industry experience will introduce you to different cultures and working environments. As a RIIERP intern, you’ll develop your professional and research skills and learn from renowned leaders while working on industry and client projects. Take advantage of opportunities with major organisations such as Airbus, European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS), Bentley Motors, the Siemens Group, Nestlé, Robert Bosch, Volkswagen, BMW and the Rolls-Royce group and more.
