Support for international students

Coming to Australia to study can be the adventure of a lifetime. We'll support you on every step of this exciting journey.

Airport pick-up

We can pick you up from the airport when you land in Australia for the first time. This is a free service for all international students when they start their studies at Deakin University.

Safety and security

Australia welcomes visitors and migrants from all over the world – you'll often hear us described as a proudly multicultural society.

Australia is a very safe place to live and visit. At Deakin we work hard to make sure that our students and staff feel safe and secure at all times.

Clubs and societies

Joining a club is a great way to meet new people. As well as clubs for all kinds of courses, sports and interests, we have many international-focused groups too.

Right now at Deakin there are dedicated clubs for students who are of Chinese, Sri Lankan, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Japanese, Malaysian or African descent. And you can always start your own if you want to.
