- About Deakin
Do I have to study both units?
You have the choice of doing one or both units on the program.
Does the price change if I only study one unit?
No, the program fee will be the same as this paid for your travel and accommodation etc. Your unit fees will be charged in the usual fashion via studentconnect.
Do I take part in everything if I only study one unit?
With exception of the orientation night and one introductory session for each unit, all site visits, formal seminars, lectures and cultural tours are integrated regardless of whether you are enrolled in one or two units. Attendance is compulsory at all sessions during the program.
Does Deakin organise the flights?
You will be required to arrange your own travel to arrive in Shanghai at the start of the trip and to depart from Hong Kong at the end of the trip. All travel inside China (incl. Hong Kong) within the program is arranged for you and is included in the program fee.
Can I stay in my own accommodation?
Students gain a great deal from living and working with other group members. Although you may live or have family/friends in China, it is required that you to stay with the group which also means staying in the accommodation booked by Deakin. Often, groups stay up late to work on projects and we often leave early in the mornings for site visits or travel to different cities, therefore it is expected everyone stay in same location all time.
Do I need to know how to speak Chinese?
No, it is not a requirement to know the local language to attend the program. However, learning a few words of local language is always helpful when travelling to a foreign country.
