Brief Introduction to the University
Deakin University aims to be Australia's most progressive University, recognized as relevant, innovative, and responsive in all its activities. Scholastic excellence, top quality research, industry partnerships and tailored courses are among the factors that attract students from all around the world.
From our campuses in Melbourne, Geelong and Warrnambool, Deakin successfully combines traditional values of excellence in teaching and research with an attitude that challenges conventional practices and produces new ways of developing and delivering courses.
Deakin University is the largest provider of professional and business education in Australia. We work in partnership with government, leading corporations and professional associations to deliver some of the most significant professional programs in Australia and internationally.
It is through these alliances that we remain in touch, enabling the University to continually renew itself so that our focus and offerings remain contemporary needs and meet the changing needs of both students and partners.
Deakin has always placed a great emphasis on the quality of its teaching and learning and on the use of highly innovative teaching and delivery methods. Deakin's reputation for excellent teaching and innovative course delivery has been recognised through many awards over the past decade. It has consistently achieved the highest ratings in surveys of graduate satisfaction, and has twice won the coveted Good University's Guide University of the Year award.
Deakin encourages a vibrant culture of research, working in partnership with government, industry and some of the world's leading research institutions to produce research of distinction with relevance both in Australia and internationally. The focus on current world issues and trends places Deakin at the forefront of innovative research in areas including Advanced Materials Manufacturing and Performance, Biotechnology, Ageing and Chronic Illness, Citizenship and Globalisation, Physical Activity and Nutrition, Quality Learning, Social and Mental Health and Sustainable Natural Resource Management.
The professional orientation of its programs, its numerous and varied partnerships, its rapidly increasing research profile and its successful use of technology for teaching, make the University a leader in the provision of contemporary education.
