- About Deakin
Competitive in-country scholarships are available to assist students in study in the Middle East. For further information please contact the experiential learning officer on telephone 03 5227 2693. Students undertaking the Arabic major or the Language and Culture Studies major (referred to later) are encouraged to study abroad during the trimester 3. Intensive in-country units provide opportunities for students to increase their level of linguistic proficiency and cultural understanding. De akin has well-established links with a number of institutions in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. These relationships form an important feature of the Arabic program.
In-country units are offered at both second and third-year levels, and students who successfully complete these units will receive 2 credit points towards the major sequence. It is possible, therefore, for students to complete the major sequence in two years. This is an excellent way of accelerating completion of the major. Not only is the in-country experience a unique part of the language study, the fact that students will have completed the major in tow years gives them flexibility in the third year to take additional units. The Arabic major sequence is offered at two levels; beginner's level (little or no prior knowledge of the language) and post-year 12 Arabic.
