Well, choosing a university can sometimes be tricky but Deakin Open Day gives you a glimpse into what it’s like to be a student. Plus, there’s heaps of fun stuff, free entertainment and great food between the information sessions.
Talk to us! Our staff and students are able to advise you on courses, how to apply, what extra entry requirements you might need. We'll also give you lowdown on university life while you roam around and get a feel for the campus.
Don't worry, they're easy to find. The General Information Stand, and the Career and Course Information Centre, are your first stops. That’s where you’ll find all the information you need on courses, including postgraduate studies. If you need an Auslan interpreter this is also the place to ask.
Think about what you’re interested in and if you want to study full time, part time, on campus or online. Then ask us how that translates into a course, what the entry requirements are or how it can lead to a career. If you need some help thinking about your options, then you can kickstart your course and career exploration with our new Explore App.
Check out the full range of transport options for getting to each Deakin campus.
Our new wayfinding app – which you can download now – will help you navigate through our campuses. And if you still get lost, don't worry! One of our friendly student ambassadors will point you in the right direction.
