Short Term Partner Programs

Short term experiences with a long term impact

UPDATE from Deakin Abroad (5 June 2021): Due to the high level of uncertainty, the university has decided to suspend ALL face-to-face global mobility programs scheduled to commence in 2021.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide a 2022 update as soon as possible.

While face-to-face global mobility programs are suspended, Deakin will continue offering virtual global learning programs. If you are interested in a virtual program, please monitor our website and social media channels.

In the meantime please check our virtual study options listed below.  

Short Term Partner Programs are intensive global learning options to progress your degree during the June/July break and T3. These two- to six-week long programs are offered by Deakin’s partner universities or approved hosts.

You must have a minimum Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 60 unless otherwise stated. Some discretion may apply to this requirement; please email Deakin Abroad to discuss. Please note, if you are undertaking your final unit abroad, your attendance at a graduation ceremony may be delayed due to your host university releasing results at conflicting times. By proceeding with a Short Term Partner Program application, you acknowledge that you will need to attend the next available graduation ceremony.

  • There are two types of short term partner programs:
    • Exchange: You pay tuition fees to Deakin University as per normal but pay all associated program costs directly to your host institution.
    • Study Abroad: You pay tuition fees and all associated program costs directly to your host institution.

Please refer to the specific program brochure to find out whether your program is Exchange or Study Abroad.
