A Study Abroad program is a fantastic opportunity for international students to study courses at RMIT University in Melbourne, for either one semester (around six months or two semesters (one year).
Note: Study Abroad semester 1 2021 is closed due to COVID-19. We will start accepting applications for Semester 2 2021 in January 2021.

The subjects that you study at RMIT can be credited towards your degree if they have been approved by your home institution.

Courses are only available in:
Option 1: Design your own course by selecting subjects from RMIT University's range of disciplines.
