Leading the way

Deakin is forging a new path both locally and globally as a leading provider of innovative learning and a positive university experience. We are proud to be in the top 3 per cent of universities across all three of the major international university ranking systems (the Academic Ranking of World Universities, Times Higher Education World University Rankings and QS World University Rankings), assessed from 17 000 universities worldwide.

Highest level of student satisfaction

For five consecutive years, Deakin has achieved the highest level of overall student satisfaction amongst Victorian universities. These great results are based on 2010–2014 Australian Graduate Survey responses to 'Overall Satisfaction' amongst bachelor's degree graduates.

Careers and experience, not just courses

Deakin makes it a priority to maintain close industry relationships so that everything you learn is modern and relevant to your future career. Many of our courses offer professional accreditation and endorsement through a range of industry placements and internship programs. We also actively encourage students to make the most of study abroad opportunities. We have over 100 partner universities in more than 40 countries around the world.

Flexible learning to suit you

Studying shouldn't mean that you have to put the rest of your life on hold, that's why Deakin has tailored our enrolment modes to give you flexibility. With a number of subjects and courses offered through the innovative cloud (online) platform, you can learn when and wherever you need to.

Convenient locations and modern facilities

Deakin has four great campuses throughout Victoria at Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waterfront, Geelong Waurn Ponds and Warrnambool. Each location provides a unique study experience and gives our students access to the latest tools and technologies such as the Deakin Motion.Lab and the Geelong Technology Precinct. Regional and outer metropolitan residents can also benefit from our Deakin learning centres.
