How to apply for your short-term program

Short term overseas study programs give you a chance to study overseas in the summer or winter breaks. They are usually worth between 12.5 and 25 credits, depending on the duration of the program.  The University has pre-approved a list of options over summer (November-February) and winter break (June-July) to make it easier for you to choose and apply for a program. 

Students who will enrol in a University of Melbourne overseas subject (UMOS) which appears in our Handbook and contains an overseas component (e.g.: The Graeco-Roman City in Antiquity, clinical placements, internships, and travelling studios) should register here, but only for UMOS.  Where you want to participate in a short-term program which has not been pre-approved above, follow the steps below.

1. Choose an institution

Students may now only study at approved overseas institutions from the Study Abroad Catalogue (Nov 17).xlsx (18KB). You can, however, petition to have an institution added to the Catalogue.

Adding an Institution to the Study Abroad Catalogue

  1. Download this form (83KB pdf) and complete it in full.
  2. Navigate to https://ask.unimelb.edu.au/app/ask
  3. Under ‘Current Students’ select ‘Submit an enquiry'
  4. Label your enquiry as ‘Study Abroad Catalogue Petition’ and include your Student ID under ‘Enquiry Title’
  5. Under ‘Topic’ select ‘Overseas Study’ and then click the box again to select ‘Help with my application’  Then submit your message. Subject line should identify 'study abroad catalogue petition'.

Institutions in high-risk locations as designated by DFAT as Reconsider need to travel or Do not travel will not be approved.

2. Due dates for short-term programs not pre-approved

To be approved to study overseas in a short-term program that is not on the pre-approved list, you must apply by the dates listed below.

Calendar Period of Overseas Study Application Availability Dates
January-July Friday 28 July until Sunday, 22 October 2017
August-December Friday 3 March until Sunday, 27 May 2018


3. Seek Stop 1 approval

Stop 1 can provide advice about short-term programs over the summer or winter breaks. You must meet the eligibility criteria and do not need to attend a myWorld First Step Session. It is, however, recommended that you attend as you will find it does provide useful information.  To get approval you must click the "Apply now" button above and complete the form.  This button will only be visible during the application availability dates.  

Preparing your Study Plan

To get approval for the subjects you would like to do overseas, download and follow the instructions for the Global Mobility Study Planner.  When you seek approval for subjects, make sure you upload a copy of your petition approval email into the Study Planner.

Credit for short-term programs is granted upon presenting an original academic transcript to Stop 1 from your host institution. Also be prepared to bring back your overseas work to be reassessed at the University of Melbourne, should this be deemed necessary.


4. Apply for a place

If your Study Plan is approved by Stop 1, apply directly to the host institution for entry. Some institutions may have an online application process, if not, you will have to request the appropriate forms be sent to you.

Remember:

  • to apply by the host institution due date for applications;
  • to provide all the documentation requested, such as transcripts, academic references;
  • you may have to prove that you have sufficient funds to support you while living there; and
  • you will probably have to pay your fees to this institution.

5. Funding

After completing the application you will automatically be considered for a Melbourne Global Scholars Award. Also consider applying for a Melbourne Global Mobility Scholarship in Language Study or one of the many scholarships available from other bodies. You can apply for most scholarships without being formally accepted by the shot-term program institution.

For more information about possible scholarships see:


6. Enrolling and Re-enrolling 

If your application to study at the overseas institution is accepted, you need to request Stop 1 to enrol you in placeholder subjects with the prefix 'STDY'.  These do not generate any tuition fees at the University of Melbourne but do indicate that you are away studying overseas. They also note what credit it was agreed you would be awarded for that study when you return with an official transcript from the host institution, assuming you passed the subject(s).

You should ensure that you change your enrolment before you leave Australia to do your study overseas. If it is time to re-enrol before your study period overseas has started, follow the instructions on the exchange re-enolment page. If you are overseas during re-enrolment time, follow the exchange instructions for re-enrolling while overseas.

Note: when you enrol at the host institution, if you have the option of enrolling in subjects which will have results which are graded or simply pass/fail, you MUST choose to be enrolled in the subject(s) for graded results. This has implications for point 8 below.


7. Pre-departure arrangements

Remember to arrange a flight, visa, and accommodation at or near your host institution. Students travelling on "university business", in other words for credit or to meet a hurdle requirement, are eligible to register for the University's free travel insurance. Please register before you leave the country.
 

8. Your transcript and results when you return

You must bring back a transcript with you from your short-term program or ask that it be sent back to you at your home. The credit it was agreed you would receive from your time studying overseas cannot be awarded until an official transcript has been sighted by Stop 1. It assumes that you had the program approved and passed it.

Note: There is usually NO transfer of marks from your studies done in this manner (the exception is for study done for credit to an Honours year); only the credit load undertaken (12.5, 25 points etc) will be credited to your University of Melbourne degree. Speak to the relevant faculty or graduate school if you are concerned about the implications for future entry into Honours or graduate study.
