Melbourne is known for its cosmopolitan atmosphere incorporating fantastic art and music, comforting cafes, and lively sporting events. I took advantage of these opportunities as often as possible.

Course Information

Melbourne, Australia | 2018 Trimester 1: Feb – Jun

Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.

Academics

USAC's partnership with Deakin University provides you with a wide array of course options including the opportunity for qualified year-long students with junior standing or higher to participate in a credit-bearing internship as part of their full-time course load. Students on USAC's program enroll in regular Deakin University classes alongside their Australian peers.
