Success Coaches

What is a Success Coach?

A Success Coach is an experienced Deakin student who helps online students in their first trimester to:

  • Navigate their way through Deakin services.
  • Understand strategies for successful online study.
  • Build relationships with each other and with the University.

The focus of the program is to establish a connection between a new online student and an experienced student. Students are matched with a coach from the same faculty with the aim to assist new students with their transition into Deakin.

What can a Success Coach help you with?

A Success Coach can help you navigate your way through Deakin’s services and opportunities to help you find and access any services available to you. In addition, they can provide you with information about unit sites and study support resources available to you.

It's important to know that a Success Coach cannot help you with an assignment or the content of your course, however they can provide referrals to free support services within Deakin.


Applications for the 2024 Success Coach Program are now closed.

If you have any questions, please contact success-coaches@deakin.edu.au.
