Welcome to the School of Education's Global Experience Program
The Global Experience Program (GEP) is a teaching practicum program for students enrolled in pre-service teaching courses. It offers students a diverse range of experiences in educational settings beyond Victoria Australia.
The personal and professional benefits of engaging in an international experience are demonstrable. It challenges you to think about, deal with, and appreciate cultural and educational knowledge and/or practices and perspectives different from your own. And the result is a more global approach to the teaching – learning process.
Students who have the opportunity to participate in the program often claim the experience as the highlight of their preservice course!
I encourage you to consider participating in an international professional experience and urge you to go to the listed links for further information specific to each country.
The Faculty also actively participates in an undergraduate study abroad program with exchanges being organised between Deakin students and students of participating overseas universities.
The Faculty is pleased to receive enquiries from prospective students and from institutions who wish to offer joint programs or undertake exchanges of students or staff.
