Graduating from Deakin doesn’t mean losing your ties to the University. Our students automatically transition to alumnus upon graduation and can enjoy the many benefits that the Deakin Alumni Community has to offer.
A community of over 220,000 people from around the world.
Since Deakin began teaching in 1977, over 220,000 students have graduated from the University. These students have originated from metropolitan and regional Victoria; from across Australia and from over 110 countries spanning the globe.
Membership to the Deakin Alumni Community is automatic, inclusive, and enables our graduates to stay in touch and retain their links to the University, which is ranked third in Australia for graduate employability.
