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.

For more information, visit their website.


Australian Universities operate using a different semester system. Be mindful of this when researching opportunities abroad. Hunter students cannot apply for Australian trimester 3 (Nov-Feb). Trimester 3 overlaps with the City University of New York's Fall & Spring semesters.

  • Australian Trimester 1 (Feb-Jun) = Hunter Spring Semester
  • Australian Trimester 2 (Jul-Nov) = Hunter Fall Semester
  • Australian Trimester 3 (Nov-Feb) = DOES NOT APPLY



*Note: You must apply to Hunter's Office of Education Abroad before completing Deakin's online application. We will send nominees instructions for completing this component after acceptance.*

Trimester 2 (July-November) - Fall 2017 - Application Deadline: February 24, 2017


Trimester 1 (February-June) - Spring 2017 - Application Deadline: September 15, 2016


Applicants to the exchange programs are also eligible to apply for the Chancellor’s Global Scholarship.
