If you’re an international student based overseas, here’s how we can help you during COVID-19

Diversity is one of Deakin’s greatest strengths, and our international students are a very valued part of our community. While many of you are currently studying from overseas due to COVID-19, we’re still here to help you every step of the way. If you need assistance with your studies, there’s a range of support you can access.

Financial support

For many students, one of the hardest parts of living with COVID has been the financial impact. There’s a range of support options available, so visit our financial assistance webpage for information about interest-free loans, financial counselling and other help. If you think you need significant support, contact Student Central. Our Financial Assistance Team will work with you one-on-one to discuss support options.

Course and enrolment advice

If you have any concerns about your enrolment, talk to a Student Adviser from Student Central. They can help you with course and unit advice, full-time and part-time study options, intermission and visa compliance advice.

If you need specific help with personal and learning issues related to your health and wellbeing, you may be referred to an International Student Support Officer (ISSO) for further support.

You can book a phone or Zoom appointment with a Student Adviser up to 30 minutes in advance.
