- About Deakin
The University wants you to be successful and will put in place strategies as early as possible to assist you to improve your academic performance. Unsatisfactory performance may occur for many reasons. It is important to reflect on what has occurred and why. It is also important to take appropriate action quickly. Get proactive.
If you are having difficulties with your studies, or if you fail an assignment or a unit, you should seek support as soon as possible.
Deakin University Student Association (DUSA) also provides independent advocacy assistance to students who need help with their appeals and submissions.
Unsatisfactory academic progress and facing exclusion from your course are often highly stressful situations to deal with.
If you feel distressed by the situation you may find it useful to discuss your feelings and concerns with family, friends or professional counsellors. There are a range of support services available:
If you have a health condition, mental health issue or disability that is affecting your study, talk to the staff at the Disability Resource Centre, Division of Equity and Diversity.
* This is important when you move house, when you are in between residencies, or even if you go home during University breaks.
