Your options

If you receive an offer from Deakin, there are a number of options available to you. You can:

  • accept the offer and enrol, then start your studies the next available trimester
  • defer your offer, which means putting off the start of your studies by up to two years (depending on what sort of offer you received).

If you accept your offer and enrol straight away, you can also consider a reduced course load to ease into study. It's up to you.

Make sure you enrol on time

It’s essential that you enrol before the date in your offer email. If you don’t, you may lose your place and we might offer it to someone else.

If you have chosen to defer, it's important that you still activate your Deakin Student Account and complete a deferral of offer form by the deadline specified in your offer email.

Choose your units

When you enrol you’ll be picking your first year units. It’s a good idea to read the Deakin Handbook in advance, so you’ve got a good idea of which units you’d like to do. If you’re not sure, speak with a course adviser. They’re happy to help with course and career advice.
