What is inter-location exchange?

Inter-location exchange is the recommended global experience for SIM students seeking to take core modules in a different location.  It is a fantastic opportunity to study in Australia and immerse yourself in a new culture.

RMIT Melbourne and Vietnam students are also able to undertake exchange to SIM.

Who is eligible?

Inter-location places are limited and are awarded based on academic merit.

All inter-location exchange students need to meet the eligibility criteria:

  • be in your final year, as per SIM requirement
  • have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (out of 4.0), or 60% average
  • be enrolled in one of the following RMIT University programs:

    • BP254 Bachelor of Business (Accountancy)

    • BP255 Bachelor of Business (Logistics & Supply Chain Management)
    • BP217 Bachelor of Business (Management)
    • BP252 Bachelor of Business (Marketing)

What can I study?

The College of Business at RMIT Melbourne recommends these courses for SIM students (PDF 24KB 1p). You will need to list the courses that meet your program requirements in your Expression of Interest.

Students from the Bachelor of Business (Management), please note that there are some course changes since the course mapping (PDF 24KB 1p) was created. Refer to the program structure of the Bachelor of Business (Management) program under ‘Year Three of Program’ for the list of the new courses.
