Filipino Deakin Students

Three Filipino students from different disciplines talk about their time studying at Deakin.

Luca, Deakin Representative in the Philippines

Kumusta po? My Tagalog is terrible but I love the Philippines and I regularly visit to meet outstanding Filipino students who want to study with us.

I am a Deakin alumnus and I can’t wait to share with you everything Deakin has to offer.

There is a large Filipino community in Melbourne and at Deakin and we hope you will soon be part of it. Get in touch with me if you need anything, or follow me on Twitter at @lucaselfies.

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.

Study in Australia – you'll love it

Apply for your student visa online

As a student from the Philippines, 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.

Find out more about visas


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 out more about working in Australia

Meeting people at Deakin

At Deakin, we have a thriving community of students from South-East Asia. We also have dozens 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.
