Take advantage of our pathways to Deakin
You might need to spend some time improving your academic scores or English before you start your Deakin course.
You can do this at Deakin College or the Deakin University English Language Institute (DUELI) – they're both on campus in Australia, which means you can get to know your campus, fellow students and Deakin staff before you start your degree.
Get your degree from Deakin
We offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees to international students. Once you've graduated, you'll be able to connect with other Deakin alumni in the Philippines and around the world.
Deakin ranks number 28* in the world in nursing, and we offer some of the best courses in the world in Architecture, Business, Communications and arts, Education, Engineering, Humanitarian Assistance, International Relations, IT and Cyber security, Laws, Public Health, Psychology, Science and Sport.

'With the time spent in Australia I can say that, generally, the people
are kind hearted which made me realise that I was able to adjust sooner
than I expected. Moreover, I am privileged to study in one of the best universities in the country, Deakin University.'

We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Some of our courses that are particularly in demand in the Philippines include nursing, public health, information technology and business administration.
You can work part time while you study
You'll be able to work up to 40 hours a fortnight while you're studying in Australia on a student visa. If you're not studying during Trimester 3 (our non-compulsory trimester) you can work unlimited hours.
Here at Deakin, we have a service called Job Search Essentials that can help you get job ready and find part-time work.
Meeting people at Deakin
At Deakin, we have a thriving community of students from South-East Asia.
We also have dozens of on-campus social clubs and societies – so no matter what you’re interested in, you’ll find friendly and like-minded people to spend time with at Deakin.
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from the Philippines, you may be eligible to study and live in Australia on a student visa.
Once your student visa has been issued, it will be valid for your whole course of study (as long as you meet all your visa conditions).
You can apply for your student visa online or with the help of one of our representatives in your country.
Australia might be famous for its sunny beaches, but we also have lush rainforests and mountain ranges that see snow in winter. Our weather varies a lot – you’ll want light clothes to wear in summer and a warm coat for winter (and don’t forget clothes to wear to the beach).
Find a place to call home
With a welcoming student community and lots of on-campus shops and services, Deakin will feel like home in no time at all. We have student accommodation at each of our campuses and a service to help you get settled if you'd like to live off campus.
