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 2 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. Deakin is also ranked among the top 50 young universities in the world (The World University Rankings).

Highest level of student satisfaction

Deakin University's undergraduate and postgraduate coursework graduates have the highest level of overall satisfaction across Victorian universities. The majority of their current students consider the quality of their overall experience as 'good' or 'excellent'. Values for both undergraduates (83.2%) and postgraduates (79.2%) are the highest of Victorian universities. (QILT 2018, Graduate Outcomes Survey.)

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.
