Deakin College has been offering online classes since the beginning of the pandemic. As we transition to back to normality, we are now offering more on-campus classes.
Please note the recent changes to our delivery mode from Trimester 2, 2022:
When you select your timetable, you will have the follow options to select from:
an ‘online-only’ class
an ‘on-campus-only’ class
an ‘online and on-campus’ class that is taught online and on campus simultaneously.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT DELIVERY MODE, BASED ON YOUR RESIDENTIAL STATUS, TO AVOID FINANCIAL AND ACADEMIC PENALIES.

A full-time study load at Deakin College is a minimum of 3 units (75%) or a maximum of 4 units (100%) each trimester.
Domestic students can enrol in between one unit (25%) and four units (100%) each trimester.
We recommend that international students enrol in 3 units (75%) or 4 units (100%) in order to meet progression requirements to Deakin University, as outlined in your offer letter. If you are a Foundation student, you must enrol in 4 modules (100%) each trimester. If you cannot take a full-time study load, you must contact your Academic Coordinator prior to your scheduled enrolment date for a discussion. You will not be able to use our enrolment portal if you try to enrol in 1 or 2 units and will need to seek assistance from your Academic Coordinator.
Once you have accepted your offer to study with us, we will send you instructions about how to enrol online in your course.

Visit the Department’s Staying in Australia webpage for information about student visas.
For international students commencing in Trimester 3, 2022 you can study online or on-campus, although if you are in Australia, you must attend on-campus classes.
In 2023, we will likely transition back to on-campus classes only.
Online learning refers to learning delivered on a computer via the internet and therefore does not require students to be physically present at a school, college or university in order to attain an education. Classes, assessments, and exams are conducted online.
In Trimester 3, 2022, we will be offering both online and face-to-face classes. If you are an international student who is in Australia, you must study on campus.
In 2023, we will be transitioning away from online classes and expect more students to be studying with us on campus.
It is important to know that Deakin College is offering more than online lectures and tutorials – we provide webinars, online workshops and individual study support through learning mentors and learning advisors. We also conduct online social activities to support and maintain your wellbeing. The staff at Deakin College encourage you to ask questions and are ready to provide support and guidance as needed.
