Studying abroad at Deakin gives you a great opportunity to discover the unique wonders of Australia while giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore a new culture and make new friends. With campuses in metropolitan Melbourne and the coastal cities of Geelong and Warrnambool, Study Abroad students can experience the full diversity and beauty of Australia's landscape and culture, while gaining credit for their degrees back home. This program is for students enrolled at an overseas university who wish to study for 1 or 2 trimesters at Deakin University. Deakin University uses a trimester system, which is equivalent in course load and duration to the previous semester system. Two trimesters are still equal to a full academic year.
