Global Experiential Learning


Experiential learning at its best!

UPDATE from Deakin Abroad (25 March): COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to cause uncertainty around the world, leading to the Australian Governments issuing a worldwide travel advisory of “Do not travel”. In response to this, Deakin University has made the decision to suspend all mid-year Deakin Abroad programs. We will continue to monitor the situation and we hope to provide an update on T3 programs by the end of June 2020.

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)
Think: Internship, real-world experience with some of the best companies around the world

Social Impact Programs
Think: Community development, health promotion, environmental justice, United Nations SD Goals

High Achiever Series
Think: Selective research opportunities, prominent internships, global conferences
