Types of courses

If you are undertaking your first degree in a particular subject, you are an undergraduate student.

Bachelor degree

A bachelor degree is the minimum requirement for many careers and a prerequisite for masters. They take between three to four years full time to complete.

Bachelor degree (honours)

Honours is an additional year of specialised study, usually involving a supervised project at the end of, or as part of, your bachelor degree.

Associate degree

An associate degree in arts or education takes two years full time or part-time equivalent. It is a guaranteed pathway into selected bachelor degrees at Deakin.

Deakin places a strong emphasis on integrating technology into its teaching facilities, with well-equipped laboratories that allow for numerous practicals. I am amazed at the different types of teaching facilities to accommodate lectures, interactive classrooms and more.
