International Student Connect

An inclusive program tailored for international students, offering a range of activities aimed at fostering connections with students and the Deakin community.

International Student Connect

Friday Friends launches this week. Have you registered?

Meet other new international students, get to know Deakin and have some fun along the way!
Each Friday from 23 February to 22 March.

Starting university is an exciting time but  it can feel a little overwhelming at first. This international student program is designed to support you as you settle into life in Australia and commence your studies at Deakin.

If this is your first trimester as an international student at Deakin, we encourage you to try as many activities as possible – you’ll make new friends, practise your English skills, explore your campus, discover Deakin’s support services and learn about Australian culture.
