International students coming to Australia

Moving overseas to study in a new environment doesn’t have to be scary. Swinburne makes your transition easier by providing a range of support services.

Choosing the right course

Swinburne has education agents all over the world that can help you with course advice and your university application. Ask them about courses, life at Swinburne and visas.

Swinburne course advisers regularly attend education events in different countries. We also have in-country managers who permanently live and work in India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Register for an event to learn more about Swinburne’s courses and campus life, as well as the application process.

Pathway programs

Swinburne makes it easy to progress between different course levels. We offer English language courses, Foundation Year programs, UniLink diplomas, and vocational diplomas and certificates to prepare you for direct entry to a bachelor degree. These pathway programs are designed to provide you with more academic support and class sizes are small.

Recognition for the study you have already completed

If you have been studying at another institution in Australia or overseas and would like to transfer and study at Swinburne, you may be eligible to receive credit and enter a course with advanced standing.

Planning for your career

For over 50 years, Swinburne has been partnering with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Many of our courses include compulsory work placements and industry projects.

Swinburne also provides international students with personalised support to equip you with the knowledge and capabilities to establish a successful career and to be ‘employment ready’ when you graduate.
