One-on-one consultations for change of preference

Monday 7 December – Friday 18 December

Event details

It's been a challenging year, and 2020 has no doubt thrown some curveballs at you. But you've finally made it to the finish line, and as you finish your exams, it's time to get excited and feel prepared about your plans for next year and beyond. 2021 is just around the corner, and with the help and support of a Deakin expert, you can make an informed choice about your uni preferences and feel confident about your next adventure.

A one-on-one chat can help you preference a course you love, and it will also give you a better understanding of the VTAC process.

Your consultation is personalised to your needs

Whether you want to learn more about admissions, courses, careers, pathways, application tips or our flexible study options, our experts will be ready to support you in making the best choice for you.

Bring a family member along

Family members are welcome to join your one-on-one consultation. A family member can ask the questions you might forget or hadn't considered, or they can simply join you for extra support.

Have a face-to-face chat online via Zoom

It’s nice to put a face to a name, and our consultations allow you to meet our Deakin experts from the comfort of your own home. Speaking of getting comfy, track pants and hoodies are encouraged.
