Deakin learning centres

Deakin learning centres act as an extension to our campuses. With locations in metropolitan Melbourne and Victorian regional centres, they give you flexible study options at a location that suits you.

Flexible study options

Study options are flexible and can be tailored to suit your needs. Whether you study online or face-to-face, you'll be learning in a dynamic, media-rich educational environment while fitting study around your other commitments.

Study close to home

Study the first year of your bachelor’s degree at a learning centre or TAFE partner in your area then switch to study at a Deakin campus after your first year.

Focused on career outcomes

Everything Deakin teaches has a real-world job application in mind. Our learning centres are no exception. Our professional teachers give you the knowledge and skills to jumpstart your career.
