Itinerary information will be posted as soon as it becomes available, typically late-May.International Students & Flight Credits
International students who choose to fly to Melbourne separately from the Group Flight will receive a flight credit on their bill equal to the cost of one group flight airline ticket.
Required Travel Forms
Flight Information Form
To ensure the safety of all participants, both students traveling on the Group Flight and those traveling independently must provide N.U.in with the details of their itinerary, including any and all connecting flights. Students will receive an email prompting them to provide these flight details prior to departure.
N.U.in students intending to fly on the Group Flight must submit the Group Flight Reservation Form, either online, or by faxing or emailing a paper copy to Advantage Travel. Details regarding baggage restrictions, deviations, routing changes, stopovers, and other airline policies and regulations are included on the form. This form is still being finalized. Participants will be notified when it is available, along with the deadline to reserve a seat on the group flight. Students who have specific questions about travel arrangements should contact Advantage Travel directly.
Travel & Arrival
Students on the Group Flight receive itineraries and instruction via email prior to departure, though we always recommend checking with the airline on the day of travel to stay abreast of any flight delays or changes in schedule. Once they have landed, students will be picked up by buses and transported to their residence hall at the address below:

What to Bring & Preparation
- Passport and 3 photo copies each of your passport (photo page) & Australia visa (printout from confirmation email)
- Offer letter that is attached to the same email with your eCOE. This comes directly from Swinburne University of Technology. View an example of the letter to be received.
- Please record the serial numbers of important items that you are bringing with you (i.e., camera, laptop, iPod, Kindle, etc). This will be useful in case any items are lost or stolen. We recommend leaving a copy of these numbers with family members.
- Be sure to call bank and credit card companies to notify them that accounts will be accessed from a different country during the time spent abroad. We recommend making a photocopy of all credit and ATM cards to leave with family members in case these cards are lost or stolen.
The N.U.in Program works with Advantage Travel to arrange flights for staff as well as the group flight option for students. Once forms have been filled out, and group flights are booked, participants who need to arrange any changes to their flights or itineraries should contact Advantage Travel directly.
