Host Universities

Deakin study abroad student atop a mountain at sunset

Deakin has formal exchange agreements with over 200 universities around the world. Students are strongly advised to find out as much as possible about the host universities and countries of their interest before submitting their exchange application.

Category system

Not all of Deakin's partner universities offer the same number of exchange places. We have therefore introduced a category-system:

  • Category A Universities have very limited exchange places available
  • Category B Universities have some exchange places available
  • Category C Universities have many exchange places available

When choosing your destination, please keep in mind that:

  • Students who choose a Category A University as their first preference must also select a Category B University or a Category C University as a second preference and submit an additional exchange application
  • Students must NOT apply for more than one Category A University
  • For students who choose a Category B University or a Category C University as their first preference it is optional to submit an Exchange Application for a second preference
  • Students who get accepted into a Category A University will NOT receive a Travel Grant
  • Students who get accepted into Category B University will receive a $500 Travel Grant
  • Students who get accepted into Category C University will receive a $1000 Travel

All of Deakin's partner universities are reputable institutions that offer great exchange experiences. For this reason the category-system is not a ranking-system, but rather indicates the flow of students to certain destinations.
Please be reminded that students are NOT to contact any of the partner universities directly. If you are having trouble with your research and need further assistance, please contact the Global Student Mobility Office.

Important notes


Applications to go on exchange during Trimester 1, 2015 are now closed. If you wish to undertake an exchange program during Trimester 2, 2015, please ensure you complete all exchange application steps and submit your exchange application between the Faculty appointment deadline and the exchange application deadline.

For more information on how to submit your exchange application, please refer to the 'exchange application Instructions' webpage.

Please be reminded that students are NOT to contact any of the partner universities directly. If you are having trouble with your research and need further assistance, please contact Global Student Mobility.
