Student review
Overall the staff were some of the most impressive people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They have experience but more importantly can convey this experience to any level of student. You certainly get out what you put in and the potential to achieve as highly as you are able is not limited by the facilities or teaching staff.
Response from Deakin University

Student review
I really enjoyed my course and I'm very happy I chose to complete it at Deakin University. Deakin has really amazing lecturers and I had a few who were so passionate and highly qualified in their respective fields, that it made me interested in areas I wasn't focused on initially. I also loved the campus and facilities- which was especially important with all the practical labs we had to complete. The field work involved in my course was fantastic and a wonderful experience overall. I would highly recommend this course to any environmental enthusiast's or animal lovers.
Response from Deakin University
