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!

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.

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.
