CCU is a designated exchange partner of Deakin University, which means you may be eligible to attend Deakin as an exchange student and pay CCU tuition rates. Exchange programs are run on a reciprocal basis and CCU is allowed a specific number of exchange slots that varies by year.
You can study for one semester (called trimesters at Deakin) or a full academic year (two trimesters), and receive credit towards your CCU degree. To qualify as an exchange student, you will need to be nominated by CCU.
