Parents and partners

It's not always easy for parents, partners and friends to know how to support you when you first start your university journey, especially if you are the first member of your family to attend. Talk to them and let them know what they can do to support you.

There are a variety of resources available for parents and partners of Deakin students. These resources provide key information about university life, student transition, support strategies, study support tips, news, key dates and more. Resources include the 2014 Parents' Magazine and the 2014 Calendar for Parents and Partners. For more information, please email
