I completed my high school in Bangladesh and decided to move to USA and complete my further studies there. And as one of my relatives suggested to me about this college, and then I researched a bit about it in the internet and gave a visit to it once and then decided to fill up the online application form for $20.
The course is very well balanced and most important and updated technologies are given the preference. New and updated fields like data science and machine learning are also included in the course for the students to choose. The course also includes basic mathematics and physics as well.
Great programs and qualified staff. I always wanted to travel to Australia as I have my family residing here too. A beautiful country with friendly people. Deakin University was the first university to offer me an enrollment. The others followed suit later.
Going well. It's pretty extensive and planned meticulously. Placements offer great first-hand exposure to the teaching life and are acquaint you with the expectations and duties as an Australian teacher.
I had friends over in this university that told me about the facilities and the good reputation of this school. They have a good Architecture program and have well-established professors that teach in my chosen course.
The structure of the curriculum depended on how you wanted it to be. You can choose your own electives so long as you take the core subjects that are needed for the course. You can choose up to a maximum of 4 electives or 4 credit points.

It had the optometry course I wanted and the course is accelerated, so it only takes 3.5 years to complete my bachelors and masters instead of the normal 5. More of a rural area and not in the city. Lots of placement and overseas options.
Really good because it covers all the basic science and physics in the first year, then moves into more subjects specific to optometry in the second year. the third year is structured really well as we get six months of placement.
The only University that offers this course in Australia. The course is taught in the Waterfront Campus which is extremely beautiful and a stone's throw away from the beach. The faculty for Architecture is well known in Malaysia for their expertise and Deakin university is recognized by the Malaysian Architecture Board.
All of them are greatly respected in their field. They push you hard to succeed and as an international student they give you extra care and help you out in case you suffer from homesickness, etc. They are very lenient providing extensions for valid reasons. All in all great people.
Commerce degree pretty good and it was the easiest university to get to via public transport.
The commerce cores are good, it gave me an insight into what commerce major I wanted to do.
I decided to pick Deakin university as it is close to home and provides me with a very good sports science degree, as well as good facilities in the health area, this university also has a very good feel to it and a very good community.
Currently, the course curriculum at Deakin is good, it has a very large variety of subject choices which is good when it comes to picking units that follow a career path that you want to go into in the future.
It had a 2 + 2 pathway from my home country Sri Lanka so I could study part of the degree in Sri Lanka and save the cost of the degree a lot. and also it has a good reputation. I have 3 other family members who also study at this university and they too recommended it. And anyway I wanted to migrate to Australia and higher education is a good way to migrate. Then I can get a work visa. And with me, another friend of mine from Sri Lanka also came to Deakin. So I had a friend from the beginning too. And it's a beautiful campus. There are nice and big buildings and a water fountain, beautiful sceneries, a lot of trees, Deakin cube. Also, there are a lot of extracurricular activities. A lot of sports, games and other societies.
It is very good. Good standards and give us a broad knowledge of subject matters and everything else like leadership skills Team spirit presentation skills which helps out a future career. Exams are also very standard. Assignments are also good standard. I like it. And it suits the modern world mainly
Deakin University is the only university in Australia to offer the specific course I am interested in: forensic science combined with criminology. Due to their higher number of campuses, they are able to provide specific courses, making them a very individualized opportunity.
I think the course curriculum is pretty standard with units covering biology, chemistry, and criminology as well as data and statistics. Doing a combined course I personally find it includes a good range of topics in order to keep further employment opportunities open.
