Deakin University—Study Abroad
Program is offered through the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) at Deakin University. Choose from a variety of courses offered at three campus locations. Students may choose the Melbourne campus, Geelong campus, or the Warrnambool campus.
Melbourne, Geelong and Warrnambool are all in the state of Victoria. Victoria is Australia’s smallest mainland state but has the second largest population, with approximately 5.2 million people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. It is a place of great contrasts – ocean beaches and mountain ranges, deserts and forests, volcanic plains and vast sheep and wheat farms. The state has long been regarded as the cultural center of Australia, with a historic architectural elegance that characterizes the capital, Melbourne, and the regional cities.
The Deakin University program offers you the opportunity to enroll in a wide range of courses from the following academic faculties: Arts; Business and Law; Education; Health; Nursing and Behavioral Sciences; and Science and Technology. Courses (units) are too numerous to list here. See USAC for your class options.
The Melbourne program is administered in the U.S. by USAC and in Melbourne, Australia, by Deakin University’s International Office. The Manager in the Deakin International Office is Linda Vaughan, a native of Scotland, who worked in the United States and is an Australian citizen. She and the Deakin International Office staff will provide you with an orientation of Victoria and Deakin, direct you to your housing, assist with registration, arrange social events and oversee your general well-being.
