Deakin College encourages students to provide information regarding the nature of their disability and special needs during the application and enrolment process. It is important that you provide Deakin College with these details as early as possible so that we can assess your support needs and ensure that you are able to succeed in your chosen program of study. We acknowledge all students’ rights to privacy and confidentiality.
If needed, disability support will be provided by the Deakin University Disability Resource Centre.
Deakin University’s Disability Resource Centre promotes inclusion and access. It provides services for students where the impacts of a disability, health or mental health condition affect their studies and/or participation in university life.
If you are a student with a temporary or permanent disability, health or mental health condition, or have a carer responsibility, Deakin College staff may refer you to the DRC staff, who will meet with you to discuss the support available to you. They will work with you to identify any adjustments, services and recommendations that will assist us in meeting your individual needs.
Here are some examples of people who the DRC can assist:
If you are the full-time sole carer of someone with a disability, you may also be able to access some of the available services.
