Deakin University - Melbourne
Student Enrollment: 15,000
LocationLocated at the tip of the Australian east coast, Victoria is Australia's second-smallest state. Victoria has a wealth of diverse regional areas and attractions, from national parks and forests teeming with wildlife, to wineries, lakes and mountains offering skiing, climbing, and hiking.
Deakin University has 4 campuses in 3 locations in Victoria. The Melbourne-Burwood campus is located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, alongside Gardiner's Creek parklands and close to the natural bushland of Wattle Park. The Melbourne campus has the largest enrollment of the campuses (14,000 students). A redevelopment program has seen a new complex of modern education buildings, refurbishment of older buildings and the creation of a large landscaped central courtyard. In 2003 new facilities were officially opened for dance, television, film studies, drama, visual arts, and ecology and environment. Students also have access to a recreation centre, a gymnasium and a selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. Walking and bike tracks connect the campus to Melbourne's extensive system of bicycle trails. A tram ride from the city takes approximately 40 minutes passing through eclectic, vibrant inner suburbs to the leafy neighborhood of the university.

ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.
ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
