Give your students the Deakin experience

This year your students have the chance to see what sets Deakin apart from other universities. Our upcoming events are a great opportunity to find out what makes each of our four campuses unique and get valuable information to help them make an informed decision about their future.

Each event offers something different – encourage your students to attend as many as they can so they don’t miss out on what it's like to be a Deakin student.
