What are short-term global experiences?

Short-term experiences are group study tours, brief overseas exchange opportunities, or online study programs which can run anywhere between two to six weeks in duration. Usually delivered during semester breaks, these offerings are perfect opportunities to have a global experience without impacting in your semester study.  

There are short-term experiences to suit any student enrolled in an RMIT program, whether they be cross-discipline in delivery or centred around a particular topic and program. Each short-term global experience has unique eligibility criteria, duration, course credits and costs. Please check Mobi to ensure you meet the criteria for a particular activity before applying.

Short-term exchange

Undertake a short and sweet 2 – 6 week exchange to one of our partner universities and tick off a course or two during the Summer or Winter breaks. 

You’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a foreign culture while undertaking an intensive academic program.

There are over 20 options per semester break, and you continue to pay your RMIT tuition fees as normal.

Short-term Study Abroad

Study abroad (STA) programs are similar to short-term exchange programs, however you study at an institution where we do not have exchange places available.

To find out more check out the STA programs on the Summer and Winter links below. Note that short-term study abroad programs require out-of-pocket direct payment of tuition fees to the host university overseas in their currency.

Study Tours

Study tours are RMIT-taught courses which involve a travel component (or an online global experience). Led by RMIT academics from your school or college, Study tours are an opportunity for you to travel overseas with your fellow peers, have academics lead you on an itinerary of daily actives and gain course credit.

Short-term global experiences – online

Unable to travel? There are also heaps of brilliant opportunities available for you to take an online offering either in Summer or Winter (STA and STX), including some of our study tours, without leaving your home.
