If you'd like to take a subject that isn’t offered at VU, you may be able to complete the subject at another university and have it count toward your degree.
We also welcome students from other universities to come and take a subject (or more) with us.
You can even study overseas for a semester or a year – or come to Melbourne for part of your degree from abroad.
Cross-institutional study (within Australia)
Throughout your course at VU, you may be able to apply to study a unit at another institution.
Current VU students (outbound)
If you are a current VU student, you can undertake a subject at another institution that will contribute towards completion of your course.
Non-VU students (inbound)
If you are not a VU student, and are enrolled in a course at another institution, you can apply to study a unit at VU that will be counted towards completion of your course at your home institution.
If you would like to study overseas while gaining credit towards your course at VU, there are a number of options available.
You can study on an exchange placement with a partner institution, study abroad with an institution of your choice or join a study tour or short-term program.
We also offer several ways for international students to spend a semester with us.
