- About Deakin
Deakin University reserves the right at any time to change its offering of units or courses. Changes are only made if there is an academic or administrative imperative. Students will be notified of such changes at the earliest opportunity and alternative arrangements made to minimise any disadvantage which might be incurred.
All students are encouraged to contact course enrolment officers or course advisers. They will assist students in planning their specific course of study to ensure it meets their particular needs and interests and satisfies all course requirements.

The University's policy on plagiarism and collusion is available at The Guide. Regulation 04.01(01) - Student Discipline also contains important information regarding academic misconduct, including plagiarism and collusion. Further guidance is also available in your Faculty Student Manual.
