Overseas study

Study overseas to immerse yourself in a different culture, pick up a new language and expand your world view. An international program helps you become more independent, develop cultural awareness and learn how to be adaptable and resilient.

You'll make new friends, create a global network and have an enriching experience that will contribute to your life and career in ways you can't imagine.

Join our Global Citizenship Program

Studying overseas isn’t just a great adventure – it means you’ll be eligible to participate in Deakin’s fantastic Global Citizenship Program (GCP).

If you undertake study or work with an international focus or travel as part of your degree, you’ll be working towards your Global Citizenship Award. 

The GCP highlights the valuable skills students develop through international engagement and these are all highly sought after by employers.

I had opportunities on exchange to do things that I could have only ever imagined. Living in a different culture, learning in a new environment and fun-filled travel were all part of my Deakin Abroad experience.
