Luca, Deakin Representative in Thailand
Hi, I am Luca and I am the Deakin International Manager for Thailand. I would like to welcome you to this page, developed especially for Thais studying or wanting to study at Deakin.
You will find that there is a large Thai community in Melbourne and at Deakin, and we would love for you to be part of it! Just to give you an idea, there are more than 500 Thai restaurants in Melbourne. I love Thai food!
Get in touch with me if you need anything, or follow me on Twitter at @lucaselfies. I hope to see you at Deakin!
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.
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.
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 with other Deakin alumni in Thailand 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.
"Australia is a multicultural country. You will familiarise yourself with people from different cultures and be amazed with all the diversity. I do not feel lonely while I am studying here because I have friends and people who are very nice and friendly."
Find a course
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Popular courses for students from Thailand include business management, engineering, health sciences, information technology and nursing
Study in Australia – you'll love it
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from Thailand 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.
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.
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.
