More than 100 universities all over the world are available to you, either through direct agreements with the universities or through the various university consortia Deakin is a member of. Visit Where can I go? to find out which universities and countries are available to you.
If you are interested in learning a new language or improving an existing language, an exchange is definitely for you! The Exchange program is also a great opportunity to live in another culture without being proficient in your host country's language as all our partner universities offer subjects in English.
Going on an Exchange doesn't mean that you will lose a trimester and have to defer your graduation. All studies you undertake while overseas have to be pre-approved before you leave so that you are guaranteed to receive credit for them on your return.
As an Exchange student, you stay a Deakin student while you are away. You are still enrolled at Deakin and you continue paying your fees to Deakin rather than to your host university. This means studying overseas is affordable to Exchange students, as international fees at overseas universities can be very expensive. There are also many financial schemes to help you on your way. For more information visit How can I cover costs?
Exchange students may also be eligible for a $5000 UMAP subsidy (for certain destinations only).
Going to a host university that Deakin has an agreement with has many benefits. The Education Abroad staff know the Deakin partner universities well and you will get support and advice from us throughout the application process.
