RMIT Vietnam: Cross-campus study

RMIT Vietnam is the Asian hub of RMIT University, with two well-equipped campuses in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

The programs and courses on offer at RMIT Vietnam are identical to those offered at RMIT Melbourne, plus they are all taught in English.

Studying in Vietnam will offer you affordable cost of living, amazing food and culture, and the opportunity to travel to some of the best destinations in Asia.

New Colombo Plan (NCP) Grants of $3,500 are available for eligible students to support your semester(s) at RMIT Vietnam.

What is RMIT Vietnam: Cross-campus Study?

As an RMIT student, you have the opportunity to undertake an exchange program at RMIT Vietnam; we refer to this as Cross-campus Study.

Cross-campus study allows you to study at RMIT Vietnam for up to a year without increasing your tuition or extending your RMIT program. Plus you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of RMIT courses, which makes organising your study plan easy.

Why not connect with industry by adding an internship to your Cross-campus Study adventure.

Am I eligible?

If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student and you would like to participate, you must:

  • be currently enrolled in an RMIT program
  • have completed at least one semester of academic study at RMIT prior to applying for the exchange program
  • have a minimum overall grade average of credit (GPA 2.0)
  • have approval for the exchange semester(s) and a study plan from your school
  • have sufficient funds to finance the exchange semester(s).

What can I study?

Currently enrolled in one of the above disciplines or programs? Simply refer to the course guides in your program structure to check which courses are offered at the Vietnam campuses. If you do not study any of the above disciplines or programs, you could use your University electives.

Finance matters

RMIT offers generous scholarships to support Cross-campus Study at RMIT Vietnam.

New Colombo Plan (NCP) Grants of $3,500 are available for eligible students to support your semester(s) at RMIT Vietnam.

In addition to NCP Grants, students can apply for:

  • John Storey Junior Memorial Scholarship - Applications are based on academic merit, community service, extra-curricular interests, successful exchange placement, and nature of previous international experiences.
  • OS-HELP - A loan scheme available for a six month study period on exchange. Your loan is added to your HELP (previously HECS) debt.
  • Centrelink - Most students who currently receive Youth Allowance or Austudy will continue to do so while studying abroad.

Refer to the Financial Assistance web page for further information on funding.

What happens to my HECS/tuition arrangements?

This will not change; whilst undertaking Cross-campus Study, you will remain enrolled as an RMIT student, paying fees and accruing HECS as usual.
