Global Experiential Learning


Experiential learning at its best

In light of the pandemic, Deakin will continue to offer virtual programs over T2 and intend to offer have a broader range of overseas Global Experiential Learning programs to a range of destinations in T3, 2022.

Global Experiential Learning (GEL) engages Deakin students through Work Integrated Learning, Social Impact Programs and our High Achieving Series in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Make yourself stand out on the job market while gaining course credit as you try one (or more) of our programs.

GEL programs are typically of 2-4 weeks’ duration. They are run twice a year: over the June/July inter-trimester break and during the November-February (T3) period. Applications open in March and July respectively. Funding is also available.

Your GEL experience can include the following:

Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

Social Impact Programs

High Achiever Series
