The Global Experience
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.
Past participants in the program often claim the experience as the highlight of their pre-service teaching course. The personal and professional benefits of engaging in an international or remote community experience are demonstrable. It challenges pre-service teachers to think about, deal with, and appreciate cultural and educational knowledge and/or practices and perspectives different from their own. And the result is the development of a broader range of teaching and learning approaches and a more global perspective on education.
I encourage you to consider participating in the Global Experience Program and urge you to go to the listed links for further information specific to each destination.
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.
