- About Deakin
Universities are all about knowledge – creating, discovering, analysing, sharing and dispersing knowledge. Research is at the core of these activities and helps to make Deakin University a vibrant place to study.
There has never been a more exciting or compelling time to be at Deakin. Our university is a research driven institution, and this is reflected in our current strategy of recruiting high-flying researchers who will augment Deakin’s distinctive, broad-based portfolio of high quality discovery, applied and commercial research.
At Deakin we take pride in being relevant to students and to their communities, not just in the courses we teach, but in the research we do. We are very serious about providing excellent support and experiences for our research students, most of whom have opportunities to work with partner collaborators nationally and internationally, to present their research findings at international conferences, and to use world-class facilities within Australia and abroad.
Deakin’s success in research has been demonstrated by the granting of millions of dollars in research funding, from both the Commonwealth and private sources. The University achieved excellent results in the 2010 Australian Research Council (ARC) awards, including 13 ARC Discovery and 10 Linkage awards.
