Need English language support?

Deakin University English Language Institute (DUELI) can help you prepare for entry into a Deakin study abroad or exchange program.

English for Academic Purposes

DUELI offers multiple English for Academic Purposes levels (EAP: 1 through 3) to help you prepare for your Deakin studies.
Once you are placed at the EAP level appropriate to your English skills, you will advance through the levels. Upon successful completion of EAP Level 3, you will meet the English language requirements for most study abroad programs at Deakin University.

General English

Our General English (GE) programs are designed as a pathway to the EAP program, in addition to helping you improve your English language skills for your personal development. Upon successful completion of GE 5 you are eligible to undertake the EAP pathway.
GE students learn English for everyday situations; they learn to speak accurately and clearly, improve their pronunciation and fluency, extend their vocabulary, and continue to develop cross-cultural communication skills.

Learn more about English language requirements.
