The online portal for classes was fantastic. However, in Geelong the intensive courses and classroom sesions available to enroll in we quite limited. And need to be booked semesters in advance. No response to demand was taken by the University. They need to address the demand for these services.

As mentioned not relevant to my field. I would definitely look into the admissions office as allot of students do a bachelor degree and got straight to an MBA? Not worth it. Please make sure you get work experience first before you set on to do an MBA.

You’ll also be involved in conversations with other students and your tutors through virtual classrooms and discussion boards.

Support services for online students

You can access the same support services as on-campus students – either via Deakin’s website, over the phone, on Skype,

or in person if you are near a Deakin campus.

Specialist online advisers can help you develop successful study skills, discuss your course direction and provide career guidance.

You can also access:

  • Online library support
  • Counselling
  • Financial assistance
  • Medical services and more
