Deakin College is taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and our primary focus is the health and well-being of our students and staff. Our courses are currently being taught both online and on campus, however in 2023, we will be transitioning away from online classes and expect more students to be studying with us on campus. We will offer a limited number of online courses to domestic students only.
Speak with your Academic Coordinator (for contact details, see our staff contact page) before making your decision and consider a transition to on-campus study if you are studying online.
You can also discuss your plans with a Student Services staff member. They can help you to explore other options. Deakin College Student Services can be contacted via email: email@example.com
If you fail a unit, you will need to repeat it in an upcoming trimester.
We have a wide range of fun, informal, social activities run by various staff and students planned this trimester, both on campus and online. We will offer exercise and meditation options, chat groups, mentor study sessions, food and drink get-togethers, film and game events, and yoga! Visit the Student Portal for more information.

All Bupa Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) customers will be covered for COVID-19 related claims, irrespective of the terms of your policy. If you have Overseas Student Health Cover with a provider other than BUPA, please check with your provider.
If you purchased OSHC through Deakin College, you can change your OSHC start date to the date you arrive in Australia. This can happen before or after you arrive. The refund will be provided at the completion of your policy. The refund will be the amount calculated from the original policy start date to the date you entered the country (the new policy start date).
The change of start date can be done yourself directly by contacting Bupa, or you can request that Deakin College does this for you. You will need to provide supporting evidence such as a new visa grant notice or a record of movement from the Department of Home Affairs to show you have not entered Australia.
The best place to go for the last information on COVID-19 and OSHC is here: bupa.com.au/covid19-international
If you applied for your own OSHC with another provider, you will need to contact them directly to find out how to apply for a refund.
