- About Deakin
The first two pre clinical years of the course are based at the Geelong Campus at Waurn Ponds. Waurn Ponds, one of Geelong's western suburbs, is eight kilometres from the city centre and is only a short distance to famous surf beaches and the Great Ocean Road.
Geelong is well served by a local bus network, a new highway, a fast train service to Melbourne and an airport at Avalon. Travel between the Waurn Ponds campus and the city's main hospital is a short journey by car or bus.
Student accommodation is available at the Waurn Ponds Campus. The residences are set in a picturesque landscape close to all of the University’s main facilities. Further information about Deakin's student residence is available online.
Students will be allocated to one of the three Clinical Schools in Western Victoria and one in metropolitan Melbourne. A small cohort of students will complete Year 3 in general practices in the region.
