Deakin College

Australia
Overview

Overview

Deakin College (DC) is located in Victoria, Australia and offers a range of study programs providing a direct pathway to enrolment at Deakin University. Graduation ensures guaranteed entry to over 70 undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs. The college has seen over 22,000 students progress to their chosen degree course.

DC is located in Victoria, Australia's most south-eastern state. The state is famous for the Great Ocean Road, a highway that connects Victoria's incredible mountains, beaches and charming towns. The college itself has three locations in Australia, each situated within a Deakin University campus. The Melbourne Burwood Campus, and two campuses in the city of Geelong, about 75 kilometres south west of Melbourne and accessible by train or car in one hour.

These two coastal cities offer a modern and dynamic living experience, with plazas restaurants and bars, as well as beaches and busy arts districts. Melbourne is known for its cultural diversity and is often referred to as the coffee capital of the world. The city is regularly ranked as the world's most liveable city.

Incoming students at DC join a community of over 3,000 students from Australia and around the world. It has a large international student community that makes up around 60 per cent of all enrolled students. DC is the preferred pathway provider to Deakin University, and a DC diploma is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree, meaning students can move directly to the second year of their degree course. Fast track options are available, and start dates are flexible. A DC diploma is also accepted by other Australian Universities.

DC students benefit from shared use of all the Deakin University facilities, including study rooms, sports facilities and can even join university clubs and societies. DC pathway programs ensure a smooth and successful transition to further university education for international students.

DC also has an international campus in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Apart from being the university's preferred pathway provider, Deakin College also offers the following advantages that make it an attractive choice.

Flexible start dates

Deakin College allows three intakes per year, which means students can choose to enter a course when it is convenient for them, allowing for flexibility in their plans and schedules.

Location

With all of Deakin College's Australian campuses being located within Deakin University campuses, students have full access to services and facilities of the university. These campuses are conveniently located and easily accessible by public transport.

Learning environment

At Deakin College itself, there are a wide range of support services that students can avail to ensure a smooth transition to Deakin University.

Campuses

Campuses

Deakin College's three Australian campuses are all located within the Deakin University campuses in the State of Victoria. The three locations are:

Melbourne Burwood

This continually evolving site is Deakin College's largest campus, with around 26,000 students and 1,500 staff, and more than matches students' needs both in and outside of the classroom. The campus is about 16 kilometres from the city centre and is home to architecturally designed buildings and state-of-the-art teaching facilities. Students at the Burwood campus learn in a relaxed atmosphere, savouring the delights of studying amongst leafy green parklands, while being close to all the wonderful benefits of a thriving metropolis.

Waterfront

This modern campus is based in the centre of downtown Geelong, in a uniquely beautiful location. The stunning views on offer at Corio Bay, and the proximity to the Geelong CBD as well as the world-famous Victorian Surf Coast, are only some of the delights of this campus. Apart from spectacular shore views, the campus offers purpose-built classrooms, a state-of-the-art library, computer labs, shared learning and study spaces, and creative areas to meet, with heritage architecture all around.

Waurn Ponds

The Deakin Waurn Ponds campus is located on the western edge of Geelong and offers students the best of both worlds, a stunning modern campus set in expansive grounds, and proximity to some of Australia's most beautiful beaches and of course, the world-famous Great Ocean Road. The campus contains the Geelong Technology Precinct which facilitates research and development for both university industry partnerships and new enterprises in the region. The campus also has the engineering training centre and Deakin Medical School.

Deakin College also has a campus in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Study options

Study options

The following are the categories of courses on offer at Deakin College:

Foundation program

This is equivalent to upper secondary school (Year 12) and university foundation programs. It strives to prepare students for further study through a Deakin College diploma, or alternatively, for entry into the first year of an appropriate Deakin University bachelor's degree. The program is aimed at those who have completed the equivalent of Australian high school Year 11.

The course comprises a standard or extended track program. The standard track program consists of eight academic units: four core units and four elective units. The extended track program has an additional four core units, one of which is chosen from two alternative core units.

Diploma

Diploma courses, accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), are designed for students who have completed high school Year 12 or a selected post-secondary certificate or diploma. Diploma courses are offered in the areas of business commerce communication construction management design engineering film, television, and animation health sciences information technology science. All diploma courses serve as pathways to a wide range of majors and more specialised degrees at Deakin University.

Masters qualifying program

The master's degree qualifying program (business and law) offers a pathway to select Deakin University postgraduate programs offered in business and law. The emphasis is on building the skills necessary to succeed at postgraduate level. The program is taught jointly by Deakin College and Deakin University's English Language Institute (DUELI).

This is a non-award program aimed at international students whose academic qualifications or English proficiency levels do not match the entry requirements for coursework masters programs at Deakin University.

Accommodation

Accommodation

Students at Deakin College have a range of accommodation options open to them, both within and outside the campus. The college recommends that students arrange their accommodation as soon as they know the campus they will be studying in. Options will depend on campus location, budget and the student's preferred type of accommodation.

On-campus Accommodation

Students who choose to make Deakin their home can look forward to enjoying open and inviting spaces for socialising and studying, spacious new buildings and full Wi-Fi coverage. Living on campus allows students to immerse themselves in the Deakin experience, meet other students, and easily adjust to life at university. Each Deakin residence, on each of the three campuses - Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waterfront and Geelong Waurn Ponds - is comfortable, secure, and welcoming. Students will have access to modern facilities and a 24/7 reception.

Off-campus accommodation

International House - Melbourne Burwood campus only

International House is located a short five minute walk from the Melbourne Burwood Campus of Deakin College. International House is ideal for those Deakin College students who prefer a secure townhouse and apartment style living. Demand for this type of accommodation tends to be quite high.

Homestay

Homestay provides students with the opportunity to live with a local family, couple or single people. This option is found to be popular with students arriving in Melbourne for the first time. It is also a great way for students to improve their English and experience Australian life and culture first-hand.

Other types of living arrangements include rental/sharing of apartments, and hostels with single or shared fully furnished rooms. Students may contact the Deakin University Student Life Housing Service for more details and assistance.
