Follow these steps to complete and submit your study plan for Exchange to a partner university or the Australian Technology Network of Universities (ATN).
Step 1: Check your remaining courses at RMIT Vietnam
Go to the Online enrolment system (OES) and check what courses you can take for the exchange program. They should be courses that you have not completed and have not planned to study at RMIT Vietnam until the exchange semester.
It is recommended that you save your General Electives (GE) to broaden your options of what you can study whilst on exchange and make the process of getting a study plan approved further down the track a lot easier.
Step 2: Search and select courses at the partner university
Browse your preferred host institution’s website via Mobi Outbound page to search for courses on offer to exchange students that match your RMIT Vietnam courses.
For your study to be considered, you are required to provide and source course guides for all the courses that you are seeking approval. The detailed course guides must include the following components:
- Course code: Partner institution’s course code is different from RMIT Vietnam’s course code.
- Course learning outcomes: skills, knowledge and application achieved from learning this course.
- Course content: topics and activities covered in the course.
- Volume of learning: the number of in-class hours per week and the number of teaching weeks per semester.
- Assessment approach: assignments? Examinations? Other assessment criteria.
- Pre-requisites: specific course requirements. If one or more requirements are not fulfilled prior to the exchange semester, the selected course will be rejected by the Program Manager.
In case the host institution has not yet released course guides, you can research based on courses offered in the previous year. If you require additional information from partner institutions, please contact Global Experience Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students are required to meet the minimum full-time load per exchange semester from both RMIT and host institutions. For RMIT, it is 36-48 credit points, and for host institutions, please check it on the Credit Equivalency section of host institutions on Mobi Outbound page. You can provide 6 to 8 courses to ensure you have sufficient back-up options.
Step 3: Fill in Study Plan form(s) and Course Guide template
If you are going to exchange for two semesters, you must complete two study plans, one for each semester. You are also required to submit separate study plans for each of your exchange partner preferences.
