Short Term Partner Programs

Short term experiences with a long term impact

Undertaking a short term partner program at Deakin is a fantastic way to fast-track your degree by studying overseas while receiving Deakin credit points. You may be able to study Psychology in the Netherlands, Healthcare in the UK, Law in Denmark or Finance in China.

Short Term Partner Programs are courses offered by Deakin's Partner Universities or approved hosts. Each program has been selected by Deakin Abroad to ensure they are of a high quality, while also being suitable to count towards your degree (dependent on faculty approval).

The programs run between two and six weeks in either the inter-trimester break (June/July) or during Trimester 3 (November-February). To apply, you must have a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 60 or above (some discretion may be applied to this requirement please email short-term-abroad@deakin.edu.au to discuss).

Please note, if you are undertaking your final unit abroad, there may be a delay in your attendance at a graduation ceremony due to conflicting results release dates from various Universities. In these cases by proceeding with the study abroad enrolment, you are acknowledging you will need to attend the next available ceremony.

Travel Grants

Travel grants maybe subject to WAM and you will be contacted by Deakin Abroad with further instructions on how to receive the grant once everyone is committed and enrolled in the program.
