Ready to travel? There's a range of helpful resources for Global Science and Technology Program (GSTP) scholars.

Global scholars

Are you ready to travel as a Global Science and Technology Program (GSTP) scholar but not quite sure where to start? We've compiled some helpful resources and links.

Now that you are enrolled in the program as a GSTP scholar, start exploring study abroad. You can find the right location to travel to and who to talk to about possible opportunities. Our academic and course staff are ready to help you in your decision making.

If you have decided on the overseas location and opportunity, make sure you enrol into Deakin's global citizenship program. Also take a look at how to apply for a global study opportunity.

Current global scholars completing the program may be eligible for funding to help support their participation in the program. If you answer yes to all of the questions below, please complete the online funding application.

Frequently asked questions

My WAM has dropped below 70, am I still eligible for funding?

A requirement of the program is to sustain a WAM of at least 70. There may be other funding opportunities available but you should talk to the Study Abroad team to see what your options are.

I’m in the program but my circumstances have changed, and I can no longer go on an exchange overseas?

As you will be enrolled into one of our undergraduate courses, you will still be able to continue your studies in the course. Note, however, that the travel scholarship is linked directly with the overseas study so it would not be granted in this instance.

When on exchange will I need to pay fees at both Deakin and my global university?

No. As an exchange student, you remain a Deakin student while you are away. You are still enrolled at Deakin and you continue paying your fees to Deakin rather than to your host university. This means studying overseas is affordable to exchange students, as international fees at overseas universities can be very expensive.
