Apply for an RMIT Study Abroad or Self-sourced program for the chance to live and study overseas for one or two semesters or a shorter period at an overseas University. Study Abroad may be an alternative option to an Exchange Program (*insert link to Student Exchange knowledge article) if you do not wish to study at a partner university or if you do not meet the exchange application requirements.
