This course is designed to enable students to:
• develop their understanding of the international forces shaping government, business and community life in contemporary Australia
• develop a range of skills in analysis and interpretation of these forces
• have a grounding in business disciplines
• develop cross-cultural competencies through an internationally oriented curriculum and through participation in international study or work experience.
Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.
However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as an on-campus unit and can, in addition enrol in online or off-campus units. Best practice is to enrol in mostly on-campus units in each compulsory trimester.
In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study online and off-campus units only. Note that online and off-campus units can make up no more than 25% of a total study load.
To qualify for the Bachelor of International Studies/Bachelor of Commerce students must complete 32 credit points of study.
Students will undertake 16 credit points in the Faculty of Arts and Education and 16 credit points in the Faculty of Business and Law.
Course requirements for both the Bachelor of International Studies (A326) and Bachelor of Commerce (M300) must be satisfied.

In addition students must complete a prescribed Commerce major sequence and a minimum of 4 credit points at level 3 which must be Faculty of Business and Law units course grouped to a Faulty of Business and Law undergraduate degree.
Within the 16 credit points required for the Bachelor of International Studies students must complete 4 credit points of core units, an 8-credit-point major sequence and an approved international study experience (2 to 4 credit points). It is envisaged that students would complete the overseas experience in the third or fourth year of their course.
