Scholarships for international students
We have great scholarship opportunities for international students who have something special to offer our university and community. These scholarships can assist you with course fees, living costs, and smaller items like your books and study materials.
Take advantage of our pathways to Deakin
You might need to spend some time improving your academic scores before you start your Deakin course. You can do this at Deakin College, located on campus in Australia. That 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. And once you've graduated, you'll be able to connect with other Deakin alumni in the United Kingdom and around the world. You might even have the chance to stay in Australia to continue your studies or get work experience in your chosen field.
Spend some time studying at Deakin
Complete part of your undergraduate, postgraduate or research degree with Deakin's study abroad program and you'll earn credit points towards your degree back home. Choose to study one to two trimesters or complete a full academic year as a visiting or exchange student.
We offer courses and subjects across all major disciplines. Some of the courses that we offer that are particularly in demand in the UK include business, engineering and science.
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
There’s always an opportunity to make new friends here at Deakin. Whether you’re a debating champ or a movie buff, whatever you’re into – we’ve got the club, society or activity to help you settle into your new surroundings.
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.
Apply for your student visa online
As a student from the UK, 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 rain-forests 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!).
