Located at the tip of Australia’s east coast, Victoria is Australia’s second-smallest state. It has a wealth of diverse regional areas and attractions ranging from national parks and forests teeming with wildlife, to wineries, lakes, and mountains. With a population of 3.5 million, Melbourne is the hub of Victoria and Australia’s second largest city. Often referred to as the country’s cultural capital, Melbourne’s downtown boasts beautiful parks, wide range of ethnic restaurants and other nightlife options.
Founded in 1977, Deakin Univeristy enrolls over 25,000 students on four campuses throughout the state of Victoria. Exchange students may study at the Melbourne-Burwood, Geelong, or Warnambool campuses, depending on their geographical preference and their course of study. Deakin University has won the prestigious Australian University of the Year twice which demonstrates just how much emphasis Deakin places on excellent teaching and research.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at Deakin is available on their International Student Course Catalogue. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Students have the option of living with a local host family or living in on-campus accommodations. More information can be found on Deakin's housing options on their accommodations page.
For the Deakin exchange, students are responsible for paying:
Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator. (link: http://www.olemiss.edu/depts/bursar/estimator.html)
