Why study this course

Student review
Having begun study at a different institution and switching to Deakin, have found no reason to regret this change even if it meant taking a bit longer to complete my studies. The study content delivered was relevent for the time and the delivery from the teachers was fantastic. Support from academic services was also great - very prompt replies and guidance when and where necessary (did not have that at the first university).
Response from Deakin University
Thank you for the review - we're thrilled that you found your switch to Deakin was the right decision! It's great to hear that you felt supported during your course.
