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