Inbound students Study Abroad and Exchange at the University of Melbourne

Universitas 21

A Global Network of Distinguished Research-Oriented Universities

Universitas 21 (U21), a partnership network established in 1997, comprises 25 prestigious universities in Australia and around the world. These partner institutions are committed to advancing the internationalisation of education and all offer exemplary tertiary study across a wide variety of disciplines. For more information see the Universitas 21 homepage.

Melbourne Global Mobility promotes a number of ways for students to benefit from the U21 network, most notably via student exchanges at Universitas 21 partner institutions, and participation in the U21 Global Issues Program (GIP).

Each year a Summer School is held at a partner campus, and an Undergraduate Research conference is convened.

Melbourne students applying for exchange to U21 institutions are given preference for acceptance and housing where they have the appropriate pre-requisites and the desired program is available. If you are accepted for an exchange by a U21 institution you may be eligible for a financial bonus. More information is available from the funding and scholarships webpage.
