About the Study Abroad program

What is the Study Abroad Program?

The Inbound Study Aboard Program at RMIT University Vietnam is a program for international students whose home university does not have an exchange agreement with RMIT Vietnam, but who are eligible to study at RMIT Vietnam. Hence, students will be required to engage in study on a fee-paying basis. See our list of registered study abroad representatives to see if we have a representative in your country.

Students can choose to study a maximum of two semesters at RMIT Vietnam.

By studying with us, you will have access to our full support services through RMIT Vietnam's International Unit, which includes:

  • dedicated support for exchange and study abroad students
  • assistance with on-campus accommodation
  • free arrival airport transfer
  • orientation program
