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.

This is a really enjoyable course.

This course would be most relevant for those with computer science, engineering or straight IT background.

There's a lot of work involved but it's well structured and plenty to get your teeth stuck into!
