The university’s practical approach to learning puts emphasis on real-world experience and professional practice.

unconstrained by time or space, with no compromises in learning quality.

Melbourne is the multicultural heart of Australia – an international city that is home to people from all around the world.

A city built for exploring: Coffee shops and galleries, music and amazing food can be found down every lane and alley in the city centre, there is always something happening in Melbourne, from cultural festivals and world-class arts performances to international sporting events like the Australian Open tennis tournament.

Melbourne is a safe, smart and sociable city – a place that continues to earn its title as the most liveable city in the world (Economist Intelligence Unit, 2011–2014).

Geelong combines the best of city living with an atmosphere that is more laid back.

Just an hour away from Melbourne, Geelong has the shopping, dining and nightlife one expects of a dynamic city, but its beautiful waterfront and gardens are perfect for strolling and relaxing. And with some of the world’s best surf beaches close by, the city of Geelong is the perfect balance between the bustle of Melbourne and the beauty of seaside Victoria.

Enjoy cultural festivals and a receptive community that gladly welcomes Deakin students. You might even become a new fan of Victoria’s sports obsession – Australian rules football – by attending the games of the Geelong Cats professional football club. The team is a partner of Deakin University.

Warrnambool presents a different side of Victoria. Set along one of Australia’s most scenic coastlines, Warrnambool is the place to be for exploring the country's famously unique plant and animal habitats.

It is also a prosperous country town that offers comfortable living and a thriving cultural scene hosted by a great regional gallery and arts centre. Cruise up the Hopkins River or sit down to some excellent Southeast Asian cuisine on Liebig Street. Warrnambool has plenty of options for an active student, and the small town feel creates a sense of community that would be harder to find in a big city.
