Student Satisfaction

Highest level of student satisfaction

For five consecutive years, Deakin has achieved the highest level of overall student satisfaction amongst Victorian universities. These great results are based on 2010–2014 Australian Graduate Survey responses to 'Overall Satisfaction' amongst bachelor's degree graduates.

The 2012 Beyond Graduation Survey found that, of our 2009 bachelor's degree graduates who were available for full-time employment:

  • 95.2 per cent of those surveyed were employed full-time three years after graduating, (the national average is 92.2 per cent)
  • only 1.6 per cent of those surveyed were not working three years after graduating, (the national average is 3.4 per cent).

Deakin has over 50,000 students, with a third choosing to study online.

The Beyond Graduation Survey is conducted by Graduate Careers Australia (GCA).
