Inbound students Study Abroad and Exchange at the University of Melbourne

Finding Out About Exchange


Information sessions

The first step to take when considering an overseas exchange is to attend a myWorld First Step session.

Attending one of these sessions is compulsory for anyone wanting to submit an application for exchange. At the sessions, Melbourne Global Mobility staff will discuss aspects of going on exchange and explain the application process. You are encouraged to ask questions! Note, you must record when you went to the session in your application and attendance is checked by Melbourne Global Mobility.

In addition to the weekly sessions, there are country, faculty and occasionally institution-specific information sessions offered at lunch times during semester. Students should check the What's on at Stop 1 page and the Information Sessions registration site for further information about these events.


Faculty advisors

Each faculty has advisors available to assist potential and current exchange students. Some faculties will also run information sessions on the exchange program throughout the semester. See the list of Faculty advisors.


Returned Exchange students

Melbourne Global Mobility is able to provide contact details of recently returned exchange students, or students currently overseas, who may be able to advise you about particular exchange destinations. Making contact can be especially useful for those students seeking advice about finances, accommodation and the process of enroling into an overseas institution.<
