Somos21 and Deakin University announce first webinar talking partnerships, tuition discounts, scholarships and COVID-19



Somos21 is excited to announce its first webinar with University pioneer partner Deakin University, covering all aspects of the organisations’ strategic partnership as well as providing information on Deakin study opportunities, international scholarships and exclusive discounts on university programs for Latin American students. 


The event is set to be hosted on March 17th at 6pm (AEDT) via Zoom and will feature Somos21 Global Board Chair, Jasmine Sliger, Rebecca Ortiz (Account Manager) and Jewel Li (Deakin University).

The relationship between Somos21 and Deakin University came about through the network’s desire to manifest a more robust relationship with the Latin American student community in Australia, reinforcing their commitment to support these students in their ventures in international education. Deakin presents itself as a worthy and logical partner for Somos21 as it is one of the few Australian universities with a strong presence in Latin America, for the first time aligning the network with a renowned educational institution. 


The webinar aims to act as a useful resource for international or soon-to-be international students from Latin America, providing a deeper understanding of a variety of topics including:

  • Deakin’s many programs of member interest including STEM, Business, Social Impact
  • Available scholarships for both offshore and onshore students at both Deakin’s English Language Institute (DUELI) and the University
  • The ways in which Deakin has responded to COVID-19 challenges and what this means for current and future students
  • How the strategic relationship between Deakin and Somos21 can benefit those involved


15-20 minutes will be allocated at the webinars’ end to allow time for questions from the audience, so be sure to have any questions ready!
