Online students are also encouraged to come and use campus facilities – including our libraries, printers and fast Wi-Fi, across all four physical campuses.
AN EVOLUTION OF PASSION AND KNOWLEDGE
Deakin has provided quality off-campus learning since 1974. Now in a digital economy we’ve utilised this vast experience to develop and fine tune our digital learning tools and the overall online experience.
Online courses that work around you
Studying via Deakin’s Cloud Campus lets you learn material in your own time. Everything is in the cloud whenever and from wherever you need it. Watch lectures from your tablet while you’re on-the-go, login and contribute to discussions in the forums – online learning adapts to your lifestyle.
AND LIFE CHANGES
What suits you now may not be the same in six months, that’s why our courses allow you to switch between full-time and part-time study. You can apply to move between campus study and online study as your circumstances change.
"The staff are dedicated and responsive to individual needs. Many students in my course are from afar, so being 'local' is not really necessary."
