Take advantage of our pathways to Deakin
You might need to spend some time improving your academic scores or English before you start your Deakin course.
You can do this at Deakin College or the Deakin University English Language Institute (DUELI) – they're both on campus in Australia, which means you can get to know your campus, fellow students and Deakin staff before you start your degree.
Spend some time studying at Deakin
Complete part of your undergraduate, postgraduate or research degree with Deakin's study abroad program, and you'll earn credit points for your degree back home.
Choose to study one to two trimesters or a complete a full academic year as an exchange student.
'The support and warm-heartedness from Deakin staff and students – many from all over the world – has made me feel very welcome, and has enabled me to quickly immerse myself in the Australian learning environment.'
Find a course
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Popular courses for Chinese students include accounting, commerce, business and information technology.
Study in Australia – you’ll love it
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from China, you may be eligible to study and live in Australia on a student visa.
Once your student visa has been issued, it will be valid for your whole course of study (as long as you meet all your visa conditions).
You can apply for your student visa online or with the help of one of our representatives in your country.
Australia might be famous for its sunny beaches, but we also have lush rainforests and mountain ranges that see snow in winter.
Our weather varies a lot – you'll want light clothes to wear in summer and a warm coat for winter (and don't forget clothes to wear to the beach!).
You can work part time while you study
You'll be able to work up to 40 hours a fortnight while you're studying in Australia on a student visa.
If you're not studying during Trimester 3 (our non-compulsory trimester) you can work unlimited hours.
Here at Deakin, we have a service called Job Search Essentials that can help you get job ready and find part-time work.
Find your community at Deakin
At Deakin, we have a thriving community of students from China.
At the heart of that community is the Deakin Chinese Students Society, which organises events and academic and sporting competitions for Chinese students.
Find a place to call home
With a welcoming student community and lots of on-campus shops and services, Deakin will feel like home in no time at all.
We have student accommodation at each of our campuses and a service to help you get settled if you'd like to live off campus.
