Postgraduate online studies

Deakin University is pleased to offer recognised online postgraduate degrees to help you progress your career from the convenience of your own home. From Trimester 1 (March) 2022, select online postgraduate degrees will be offered at a new price, meaning you can get the qualification you need for less.

What we offer

Deakin University offers online-only postgraduate programs for international students.

Our fully online programs offer the same high-quality learning experience as our on-campus offerings but with the extra convenience of being able to study from your home country. These benefits include:

  • Your study experience will be less expensive overall as you don’t have to move to Australia.
  • No visa is required, which saves both money and time for the application process.*
  • Study full- or part-time and keep working at your job, allowing you to apply your learning immediately as you progress through the program.
  • Learn more about studying online with Deakin

    * Students enrolled on fully online programs are not eligible to apply for a student visa for entry into Australia.

Our new fee structure

At Deakin, we recognise that cost can be a factor in choosing to study at an overseas university. That’s why we are offering a selection of our online-only postgraduate degrees at a reduced fee. This aligns with the fee structure of our price offering for Australian students, and highlights Deakin’s commitment to supporting our international students in progressing their careers.

The current programs offered at the fully online price are:

The fee reduction for these programs represents a significant saving for the same high-quality education you expect from Deakin’s full-fee programs.
