Overseas studies for VU students
Study overseas while gaining credit towards your degree. You can study on an exchange or study abroad placement, or choose from one of our short-term study opportunities.

Study overseas on exchange and gain credit towards your degree. Our student exchange program gives you the opportunity to study overseas for six months to a year, while still paying for your studies with VU.
We have exchange partnerships with over 100 partner institutions in more than 30 countries around the world.
Study abroad for a semester or a year with a non-partner institution of your choosing, or with a partner institution that does not have any more exchange placements available.
Study abroad students will be required to pay fees directly to the overseas university or institution. Financial assistance may be available to assist you with help you with the costs involved.
Short courses and programs
Choose from a range of overseas short courses and programs offered through our exchange partner institutions, or other external parties. Short courses or programs usually run from two to six weeks.
Find out more about the range of overseas short courses or programs available.
Study tours are often organised by academic staff and involve a group of students travelling overseas. Contact a course coordinator to find out if there are any study tours available during your course.
If your course requires a practical component, you may be eligible to complete this placement overseas. You will need to discuss this with your course coordinator to obtain approval.
