- About Deakin
As an international student, Nishad Shah researched options world-wide for an information technology degree.
‘I found that Deakin provided the best academic exposure with a great opportunity to work in corporate industry.’
He says it was an industry-based-learning (IBL) opportunity in his final semester that secured his employment pathway.
‘Deakin gave me the opportunity to work in a six-month IBL placement... after completing this, I was confident enough to start applying for graduate positions and I am now working in IT for one of the largest Australian retailers.’
Nishad says Deakin gave him a solid foundation for his career.
‘Study at Deakin is very interactive, rather than just one-way communication...Deakin gave me the platform to stand with confidence in the real world.’
