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.
Deakin STEM Scholarship
The Deakin Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Scholarship is a 20 percent scholarship for Pakistani students applying for undergraduate, postgraduate coursework in the disciplines of Architecture and Built Environment, Engineering, Information Technology, Science or Environment.
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.
Get your degree from Deakin
We offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees to international students. Once you've graduated, you can connect with other Deakin alumni in Pakistan 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 for your degree back home.
Choose to study one to two trimesters or complete a full academic year as an exchange student.
Find a course
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Some of our courses that are particularly in demand in Pakistan include management, engineering and business.
Study in Australia – you'll love it
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from Pakistan, 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 Pakistan and India.
We also have hundreds of on-campus social clubs and societies – so no matter what you're interested in, you'll find friendly and like-minded people to spend time with at Deakin.
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.
I am having a great time at Deakin and I believe it is one of the best universities to gain an education. I have never experienced so much diversity any time in my life. The friendly staff, the beautiful environment and the campus facilities have made my time in Australia an unforgettable one.
