A little bit about Deakin

The major campus for Deakin is in Burwood, a suburb in Melbourne. Deakin also has Waurn Ponds & Waterfront campuses in Geelong as well as a Warrnambool campus.

We have reviews across a range of topics, with plenty across humanities, law, business, education, health and science.

Some of the advice that students give in their reviews include:
participate in any group you can (class, clubs, society, etc);
making friends makes group work easier;
ask as many questions to tutors and lecturers, course advisors, etc;
get into university life as much as you can;
watch out for parking;
don't forget, you're there to study and grades can matter for grad positions.

You can find out more about how Deakin is as a uni by reading the reviews below.

I majored in IT and Security.

Positives: I loved IT security since I touch my first computer. And at that time I was an overseas student who lived in Sri Lanka . We had no opportunity to study that course . So I choose Australia .
That's aspect one . One choice .

2nd - I loved the teacher who taught the course . They had passion to live in that industry and teach us at the same time . They cared about us and helped us in every way

3rd - The course was very flexible . I had the chance to remotely complete and the uni understood international students emotions .
Payments were also very flexible with payment plans .

Negatives: I could have got industry experience, 6 months placement . Or something to put my step on IT INDUSTRY

My advice to future students is: FIND A UNI THAT HELPS YOU AND THINK ABOUT YOU.
Further look for a course with industry experience and job placement . That will help you make your life easier
