Paying fees

Student exchange at RMIT – your home institution has a reciprocal (exchange) agreement with RMIT. As an inbound exchange student, you pay tuition fees for your studies to your home institution, not to RMIT.

Study Abroad at RMIT – your home institution doesn’t have a reciprocal (exchange) agreement. As a Study Abroad student, you’re responsible for paying the applicable fees directly to RMIT.

Keep your contact details up to date

It’s important that the contact details on your student record are up to date. Once you’ve found permanent accommodation in Melbourne, update your address by following the instructions to Update your personal details.
