Have you enrolled?
Once you've been offered a spot to study at Deakin, the next step is to accept and enrol. Your tailored enrolment process begins with your offer email, which outlines all the details you'll need to successfully complete your enrolment.
If you're a Cloud Campus student, you'll also need to nominate your exam venue when you enrol.
Getting to campus
There are several transport options to each campus, including public transport, shuttle buses and parking facilities. Most campuses also have visitor parking available.
Sorting your finances
Be careful not to underestimate how much money you’ll need at university. If you'd like some guidance on how to manage your finances while studying, we can help with fee payment assistance, budget planning, a scholarship or finding a part-time job.
