Flexible, innovative learning

Flexible education at Deakin is a distinctive approach to teaching, learning and the student experience which provides, where appropriate, choice in:

  • the time (including flexible entry and exit points) at which your study occurs;
  • the pace at which your learning proceeds;
  • the place (both physical and virtual) in which your study is conducted;
  • the content that you study;
  • the learning style you adopt;
  • the forms of assessment;
  • the option for you to collaborate with others or learn independently;
  • how teaching is staffed; and
  • the mix of all of the above used in any given course or unit.
Deakin makes these choices available while maintaining sound and consistent academic standards.
