Experience Deakin

Our students love us

Study at the home of Victoria's most satisfied students

At Deakin, we do things differently. We believe that your time at university is about more than just the classroom, so we endeavour to provide a great experience across all facets of Deakin life. That’s probably why for six consecutive years Deakin has had the highest level of overall student satisfaction amongst Victorian universities.

Survey results based on 2010–2015 Australian Graduate Survey responses to ‘Overall Satisfaction’ amongst bachelor’s degree graduates.
