HUNTER/Deakin University Exchange

Exchanges Applicant Requirements


Scholastic excellence, top quality research, industry partnerships and tailored courses are among the factors that attract students from all around the world. This exchange program offers you the chance to enrich your academic experience, embrace a new culture and experience all Australia has to offer for one or two semesters all while you earn credit for a Hunter degree. Choose from Deakin's three principal campuses - from the busy multiculturalism of Melbourne, to the distinctive regional flavor of our bayside and coastal campuses of Geelong and Warrnambool. Deakin is one of Australia's largest universities, yet the campuses are not huge and overwhelming. Each Deakin campus has a distinct atmosphere and a strong sense of community.
