GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM
Prepare for a global future
The Global Citizenship Program is aimed at supplementing your studies at Deakin and involves a combination of different international activities such as:
International study experiences
Participation in internationally-focused units
Seminars on international topics
Foreign language studies
Once you have acquired the set number points and skills, you will be awarded the Global Citizenship Program Certificate that will list the activities and the skills you have gained.
While the program is primarily non-credit bearing you can attach the certificate to your resume that will outline the skills and attributes you have attained.
This will assist you in communicating to future employers the additional skills you can offer in this increasingly globalised world. The Global Citizenship Program is designed to be completed before you graduate.
How to participate in the Global Citizenship Program
Each activity is given a point value based on its associated skills and the extent to which each skill is developed.
Refer to Global Citizenship Activities and Outcomes for full details.
Your aim is to accumulate a minimum of 100 points and 17 of the 20 skills to complete the program.
In addition you may prepare reflective pieces on many of the activities you participate in, and explore how they
have contributed to your development as a global citizen.
To become a Global Citizen, you will need to participate in a number of internationally-related activities that will
assist you to develop key personal, academic and careers skills.
