If you are under 18

Preparing for your arrival

If you are under 18

If you are aged under 18, you are welcome to study at Deakin, but there are some important guidelines that you must follow to ensure your wellbeing and help you get the most from your studies in Australia.

According to Australian immigration regulations, you can study in Australia if you are aged under 18 and:

  • you are accompanied by a parent or legal custodian, or
  • you stay with a suitable relative, or
  • your education provider provides a written statement saying that your accommodation, support and general welfare arrangements are appropriate.

If you are under 18 and applying to study at Deakin, you will need to demonstrate that you have adequate welfare arrangements in place before you can be granted a student visa. For in-depth information about how to arrange this, please visit our Students under 18 webpage.
