Deakin University is proud of its inclusive and student-focused culture, along with its long standing record for using cutting edge technology while providing a personalised learning experience. Deakin has developed a strong reputation for innovation and in this digital age is driving the digital frontier in the use of new and emerging technologies in teaching.

With more than 56,000 students, Deakin’s four faculties offer a comprehensive range of courses across the arts, science, sport, nutrition, architecture, business, law, medicine, optometry, engineering, nursing, psychology and teaching. Twenty-five per cent of Deakin’s students study wholly in the cloud and all students benefit from Deakin’s technology-rich environment.

Ensuring graduates are prepared for 21st century lives and careers is a key focus for Deakin, and we have introduced a number of initiatives to strengthen our partnerships with industry and optimise graduate employment outcomes. Deakin also encourages opportunities for students to engage in globally connected study, fostering intercultural empathy and understanding.

Our 221,000 alumni live and work across the globe and their success is the best measure of Deakin’s success.
