Deakin University

Deakin is one of Australia's largest universities, with more than 39,000 students.  Its campuses have a strong community feel and provide a supportive and friendly place to study.  Deakin's academic and support staff are knowledgable, enthusiatic and approachable.  Study abroad students can study from a wide range of courses including (but not limited to) Biology, Marine Science, Sport Studies, Arts, Business and Management, Communication and Media, Education, Environmental Studies, Health, Information Technology, International Studies, Law, Psychology, and Visual and Performing Arts.

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.
