Offshore Learning Centres and other study options

Prepare for studying abroad in Melbourne by starting your RMIT campus experience in your home country.

RMIT University is partnering with universities around the world to provide a campus experience for international students impacted by global travel restrictions and border closures. 

Offshore Learning Centres (OLC) and other in-country study options provide the benefits of a genuine campus community to RMIT students who are learning online while waiting to commence on-campus study in Melbourne.  

RMIT currently offers OLC in China. To find out more or register for an OLC in your location, simply navigate to your country below and submit a Register of Interest form for the OLC you are interested in attending.

OLC is a great way to prepare for transitioning into studying abroad by providing a safe and welcoming place for students to meet their RMIT peers, RMIT study advisors and learn in a campus environment at no additional cost. Students will also have access to university facilities and face-to-face support while completing an Australian qualification.  

Studying at an OLC will not affect a student’s eligibility to transition into on-campus study in Melbourne. We will assist students to transfer to Melbourne once it is possible. 

Registrations for Offshore Learnings Centres are currently closed. If you have any questions about studying at an OLC, you can get in touch with Study@RMIT for more information.
