When can I start?

DUELI offers nine intakes throughout the year, giving you plenty of flexibility about when to start your course. If you are studying at DUELI as a pathway to Deakin University or Deakin College, you can choose an intake to complete your English language studies before your further studies begin.

Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)

OSHC is health insurance for international students who are studying in Australia. It can help you meet the costs of any medical or hospital care you might need while you are here.

OSHC is compulsory for students from most countries, and must be organised before your studies begin.

Note: Students from Belgium, Norway and Sweden are not required to purchase OSHC, as Australia maintains reciprocal healthcare agreements with these countries.
