Program overview

Global Exchange Program is a short-term study commitment of one or two semesters at a partner university overseas.

RMIT’s wide network offers you a world of opportunities and adventure. Living and studying overseas varies widely from country to country. Wherever you go, you can be sure of an exciting and memorable experience at a location that suits your study and style.

You can expect to be amazed and sometimes a little shocked, you may be immersed in history and culture, and you will certainly improve your interpersonal skills (and many other soft skills). This is the journey for you to learn and grow. Most of you will never forget your Global Exchange experience with RMIT.

Our students have access to study experiences in over 40 countries - view our full list of Partner Universities, listed by country. When you go on Global Exchange program, you will continue to pay your tuition fees to RMIT in Vietnam - you do not need to pay any tuition fee to the overseas institution.
