The actual rooms and living quarters were nice and I really enjoyed living with almost all native Australians.

As you may already realize, Australian trimesters differ from those in the US. You may participate in one, two, or three trimesters, one running from March-June, another running from July-October, and a third running from November-February. Deakin University provides a unique three-day orientation that takes you to the beach and is designed to help make the transition into Australian university life as easy as possible. You will be introduced to various aspects of Australian life including activities like guided hikes along cliff tops overlooking the Southern Ocean, surfing lessons, and a presentation on Australian culture. On the third day of orientation, you will return by bus to your campus of study and will spend the following day attending a campus-specific Enrollment and Orientation Program where you will formally enroll as a Deakin student and be introduced to the local community.
