Inbound students Study Abroad and Exchange at the University of Melbourne

Online Mobility Registration and Travel Grant Application

This form is for students seeking approval to study overseas on a credit-bearing independent study abroad program or on a University of Melbourne overseas subject. It will also mean you will be considered for Melbourne Global funding.

Please submit this form at least 6 weeks before you depart. You should only apply ONCE for each period of time you will be away but separately for each course/subject you are doing overseas. For example, you want to do Searching for the American Dream in June followed by a German intensive course at either Universität XXX or at Universität YYY in July. You must register to do Searching for the American Dream in June and register separately for the German course in July but only once for the German course when you have decided at which university you will do the course.

If you are applying for a School of Languages Scholarship you must apply directly to the School of Languages which can be done on their website. Please DO NOT use this form.

To which course do you want this study to count?
You must nominate the faculty to approve this form who will be granting you the credit. For example if you are a Commerce student but the study listed here is for your breadth in history, the credit will be awarded by the Faculty of Business and Economics so you must nominate them to approve this study overseas. Another example is when you are studying a Bachelor of Science and a Diploma of Languages and this overseas study is in languages, the approval will be from the Faculty of Arts who award credit for diplomas of languages.
