Live at Deakin
Living in Australia
Australia is a great place to live and study. Deakin’s campuses are located in Victoria – a vibrant and multicultural state. We’re famous for our high standard of living, career opportunities, wonderful food, culture and world-class sporting events. From Melbourne’s buzzing city life to the beautiful countryside, there’s nowhere else in the world like Victoria.
When moving overseas to study, there are a number of things to consider when deciding to study in another country, from the cost of living and insurance to opening your own bank account.
