We offer fantastic English language programs for students at all levels. Whether you want to improve your general English or meet the requirements for a Deakin award course, you'll find the course that matches your needs. Eighty-three per cent of all commencing students undertake further study at Deakin after completing their DUELI English program. Many find work after they graduate in areas such as business, education, engineering, finance, health and information technology and international relations.
Non-award courses are generally single units of study that don’t add up to a university qualification. They’re a great way to explore an area of study before committing to a full degree, and can often be used as credit towards a degree course. Short courses and stand-alone study abroad programs also fall under this category.
