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.
Deakin benefits from partnerships with Indonesian institutions including Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) and Universitas Indonesia, across a range of disciplines.
Deakin offers a range of unique program with Indonesian partners to allow students to complete double degree programs. Students complete the first one or two years in Indonesia and the final two years of their degree at Deakin University in Australia. Students will obtain two degrees.

Study in Australia – you'll love it
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from Indonesia, 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 also 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.
