Student exchange to a partner university
Student exchange is where you study one of RMIT’s many overseas partner universities for one semester or a full year, gaining credit towards your program.
The process operates via a reciprocal student exchange agreement between RMIT and the partner university: we send a student to the partner university and they send a student to us. You continue to pay your fees to RMIT in Melbourne.
We offer you a great range of destinations across the world. See the Student exchange partners to decide on your destination.
View the Student exchange page on our Students website for more information and how to apply.
Study abroad involves studying overseas at a non-partner institution (where there is no exchange agreement with RMIT) for a semester or year. You apply as a Study Abroad applicant and pay tuition fees to the host institution.
You can pick any institution throughout the world that offers courses in your discipline area and accepts Study Abroad students (visiting students).
