Luca, Deakin Representative in the Middle East
Hi, my name is Luca and I am the Deakin International Sponsored Students Manager. My role is fully dedicated to managing sponsored students from the Middle East and the rest of the world, liaising with their sponsors and regularly reporting on their academic performance.
We also have a group of wonderful International Student Advisers (ISAs) that can help you with anything you might need. You can even contact them before you arrive in Australia, so that your transition to a new country will be a smooth one.
Get in touch with me or with the ISAs if you need anything, and follow me on Twitter at @lucaselfies.
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.
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.
'Living independently has changed me a lot. I have become more confident and more social. Getting to know other international students and communicating with them forced me to speak English, in order for us to understand each other.'
Find a course
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Some of our courses that are particularly in demand in the Middle East include commerce, nursing and business.
Featured study areas
With Deakin, you get it all: innovative teaching, award-winning courses and world-class facilities.

Master of Business Administration (MBA)
Deakin's MBA is one of Australia’s most highly regarded MBA programs.
Renowned for its flexibility and real-world connections to business, this internationally accredited program is designed for busy professionals who want to develop their careers while working and balancing family and lifestyle commitments.
Deakin's online MBA has been ranked first in Australia, and in the top 20 worldwide – by the prestigious international university ranking analysts QS Quacquarelli Symonds (2016).
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 the Middle East 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.
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 in Australia – you'll love it
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from the Middle East, 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 the Middle East.
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.
