The objectives of SEATS are:

  • To foster and build a sense of belonging to make students feel welcome in the Deakin community
  • To support students in establishing their own learning strategies for academic success
  • To build motivation and deepen desire for learning
  • To develop self-awareness and encourage access to support services when needed
  • To promote student engagement in university activities and events

At Deakin, we pride ourselves on our ability to foster a productive learning environment for our students and encourage engagement in transitional support. Come along to one of the above sessions, take your "SEATS" and let us guide you through your Deakin journey.
