Deakin offers you the opportunity to undertake a career pathway placement. A placement can be a valuable learning experience, it provides evidence of relevant practical knowledge, and it can be a wonderful network-building opportunity.
To enhance your learning experience and provide additional structure to your program, Deakin requires you to complete a minimum of one unit of coursework. Some academic units require more than one as each academic unit has different requirements for coursework.
