COVID-19 update

International students can start their studies by digitally-supported remote learning for most courses, including those outside of Australia. When travel to Australia is allowed, you can continue your studies in Melbourne. Further information is available in our FAQs for international students.

Travelling to study at VU in Melbourne is an exciting experience.

Do you have an international or interstate driver licence?

If you're currently living in Victoria and driving with an overseas or interstate licence, you'll need to convert to a Victorian licence. Find out more and check how long you have to convert to a Victorian licence on the VicRoads website.
