Study Abroad Programs

Have a destination in mind that is not listed as a partner institution through the exchange program?

Or is there a course/summer school offered by an overseas education institution that you have found independently?

Provided you apply for credit for the program prior to departure, you may be eligible to receive study abroad credit!

The Faculty works with Monash Abroad to approve the academic component of your Study Abroad program.

Arts Global Programs is responsible for:

  • Study plan approvals
  • Enrolments
  • Results assessment

Independent Study Abroad

Students are able to organise their Independent (Semester) Study Abroad if they wish to study at a non-partner university. Please note that this is only an option if you have already exhausted all opportunities with exchange partners first.  It is also a more expensive option as all tuition fees will need to be paid to the host institution (see Financial Information below for further details).
