Update to Deakin's response to COVID-19

With the COVID-19 situation continuously evolving, the safety and wellbeing of the community remains our number one priority.

After much deliberation and a thorough assessment of the current environment, we’ve made the decision to withdraw Deakin’s attendance from all face-to-face events until the end of May. This includes all school visits and our upcoming Step on Campus school holiday program.

Events scheduled from June onwards will be assessed closer to the date. We’ll communicate with you directly on these as soon as we receive definitive guidelines from the relevant medical and government experts.

The good news is, we’re exploring alternative ways to connect with your students to ensure they continue to receive ongoing study and career planning support during these complex times. Stay tuned for an update soon!

In the meantime, should you have any queries or require further information we encourage you to get in touch or reach out to your key recruitment contact.
