Scholarships for international students
We have great scholarship opportunities for international students who have something special to offer our university and community.
These scholarships can assist you with course fees, living costs, and smaller items like your books and study materials.
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 towards your degree back home.
Choose to study one to two trimesters or complete a full academic year as an exchange student.
Study English at Deakin
If your English language skills don't meet Deakin's requirements, you can study an English language course at Deakin.
The Deakin University English Language Centre (DUELI) is one of the best language schools in Australia, and offers many different courses to help you improve your English to gain admission to Deakin’s sought-after award courses.
Improving your academic results
You might need to spend some time improving your academic scores before you start your Deakin course.
You can do this at Deakin College – located on campus in Australia, which means you can get to know your campus, fellow students and Deakin staff before you start your degree.
Get your degree from Deakin
We offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees to international students.
Once you've graduated, you'll be able to connect to other Deakin alumni in Latin America and around the world.
You might even have the chance to stay in Australia to continue your studies or get work experience in your chosen field.
Ana María's story
'I am currently working on my PhD thesis, which aims at determining the health impact of breaking-up long periods of classroom sitting by young children and adolescents.'
Find a course
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Some of our courses that are particularly in demand in Latin America include commerce, nursing and business.
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 Latin America.
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.
Apply for your student visa
As a student from Latin America, 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!).
