- About Deakin
Every trimester hundreds of students from around the world come to Deakin University to begin their study abroad or exchange experience. To give them a chance to meet current Deakin university students (and the other way around) the Study Abroad & Exchange Office has established 'The Buddy Program'. The application window for Trimester 1, 2013 has closed.
The Buddy Program is designed to help Study Abroad & Exchange (SA&E) students settle in and find their way around Deakin University and our city. The main intention of the program is to:
- Help create a supportive network for SA&E students yet to arrive
- Offer SA&E students friendly, practical and competent assistance upon arrival
- Answer questions from SA&E students about Deakin University and Australia
- Actively assist SA&E students to settle in post-arrival
- Help SA&E students make a smooth transition into Deakin University and Australian life
And that’s where you come in!
Buddies are students like you – students who have an interest in studying abroad and travelling, know a thing or two about Deakin University and love meeting new people and making new friends form different parts of the world.
