Bachelor of International Studies (Global Scholar)
Develop intercultural competencies and an established global perspective by studying Deakin’s Bachelor of International Studies (Global Scholar). You’ll gain a foundation knowledge of the global political climate and participate in international experiences to begin building a global career from the very start of your studies.
Designed for high-achieving students, you’ll proactively build a professional portfolio of international experiences while learning about the forces that shape government, business, and society throughout Australia and the world.
Understand how events of the past have contributed to today’s environment and apply transversal and analytical skills to reflect on the past and tackle the future. You’ll learn what it takes to establish and maintain a professional presence as international relations professional, as well as build a graduate portfolio that highlights the key learning outcomes you’ve acquired throughout your degree.
The Melbourne Burwood Campus is Deakin’s largest. A short trip from Melbourne’s central business district, Burwood offers the perfect balance between city lifestyle and suburban comfort. On campus you will find impressive buildings and world-class facilities, a wide range of learning and social spaces, and a relaxed atmosphere. If you enjoy getting outdoors between classes, the Melbourne Burwood Campus also sits alongside parkland, which is great for walking, jogging and cycling.
Geelong Waterfront Campus
Located in the heart of Geelong, the Geelong Waterfront Campus has spectacular views of the bay. Used as wool stores in the 19th century, this campus has been renovated to create an impressive, modern space that offers an inspiring study environment. The unique mix of old and new allows for engaging and creative spaces, and its central location means students can visit Geelong’s central business district between classes. In 2019 a new ferry travelling between Melbourne and Geelong was launched. The ferry offers a comfortable and convenient mode of transport. It docks a short walk from the Geelong Waterfront Campus. Train and bus services are also regularly available between Geelong and Melbourne.
