Australian Government Student Mobility Programs

The Australian Government encourages Australian students to immerse themselves into social and academic cultures of other countries, and provides opportunities for international students to study in and experience Australia. The Government also seeks to support Australian higher education providers in further developing and diversifying their linkages with partner institutions overseas.

Each year there is a funding round for institutions to apply for project grants to support their students undertaking short-term and semester-based study overseas. The Office of International Services (OIS) regularly organises timely information sessions to support academic and administrative staff applying for project grants. For more information on available OIS support please visit the Support and training page.
