Success Coaches

Success Coaches are experienced Deakin coaches who support Cloud Campus students in their first trimester.

What is a Success Coach?

A Success Coach is an experienced Deakin coach who helps Cloud Campus 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 main focus of the program is to establish a connection between a new Cloud Campus student and an experienced student. Where possible students are matched with a coach from the same course – if not possible, the same faculty. The connection between coach and student aims to assist new students in their transition into Deakin.

Through email contact, the coach helps students to navigate their way through Deakin’s services and opportunities and to assist them to build relationships with each other.
