Study Abroad and Exchange (Incoming)

Deakin students on the Melbourne Burwood Campus 

Study for one or two trimesters at Deakin University

The Study Abroad and Exchange Program is for students enrolled at an overseas university who wish to study for one or two trimesters at Deakin University.

  • You can come to study in February, July or November because Deakin uses a trimester system. Taking any two of these trimesters is equivalent to taking a year of study at your home university. For further information please visit the information section of the website.
  • If you start in February or July you will also be invited to come and experience some beautiful Australian coastline at our fantastic Beach Welcome Program. This program takes place before classes start and is a great way to kick things off.
  • If you'd like a shorter visit to Australia as well as credits towards your home degree, you might prefer the three-week Summer School that runs over January each year. This is a great chance to satisfy your intellectual and cultural curiosity about Australia's diverse, friendly and harmonious culture.

Exchange students from a partner university should talk to their university's international office before submitting an application. Or, if you'd like to use an overseas agent please see our list of approved agents.
