Short Term Programs


Short term experiences with a long term impact!

Thinking about studying abroad, but a full trimester abroad doesn't suit?

An excellent way to participate in international study without committing to a full trimester is to participate in one of the many Short Term Programs that Deakin has on offer. You can travel during the trimester breaks and earn credit towards your degree. Spend this January in Germany, France, Peru, Japan, Denmark, South Korea, the Netherlands, Mexico, Turkey, the Czech Republic or one of many other destinations. 

Short Term Programs are courses offered by either Deakin's partner universities or approved hosts. Each program has been carefully selected by Deakin University staff to ensure they are of a high quality, while also being suitable to count towards your degree (dependent on faculty approval).

The programs run for between two and six weeks in either the inter-trimester break (June/July) or during Trimester 3 (November-February).

Please note: Most of the Short Term Programs offered through Deakin are held in the northern hemisphere. As a result, 'European Summer' programs refer to those running in June/July, and 'European Winter' programs are held during Trimester 3 (Nov–Feb).
