RMIT University

Short term programs

Study, travel and earn credit towards your degree with RMIT study tours and short term programs. Both programs are available in the summer and winter breaks providing flexible options for your studies.

What is a Global Intensive (Study Tour)?

Forget you average tourist tours! Global Intensives give you an opportunity to experience a country and its culture with locally connected program leaders. Spend two-four weeks over the winter and summer breaks and earn credit towards your degree. All intensive programs are accompanied by an RMIT Academic.

What is Short-Term Program?

Want to get a taste of the world but not sure where to start? Short-term programs give you an array of options: spend the winter in Korea studying organisational culture or go to China and learn about cultural diversity through language, all the while experiencing a new country.

The options for short-term programs are endless; you can study through an exchange partner, through study abroad or through an external provider. Most programs will allow you to transfer credit back to your degree at RMIT.

RMIT offers places in partner university programs on an exchange (tuition fees payable to RMIT) or study abroad (tuition fees payable to host) basis.
