Make a strong start to T1 with a free health check – we’ll also give you a Study Melbourne welcome pack!

Welcome to Trimester 1 – we hope you’re excited to begin the new study period! We’re here to help you achieve your academic goals and get the most out of your time at Deakin, which is why we encourage you to take advantage of our on-campus health checks.

They’re available to all international students, regardless of which provider you’re with for your Overseas Health Cover (OSHC) and whether you’re a new or a continuing student. And, best of all, they’re free for you to attend!

Looking after yourself is crucial to your enjoyment and success at uni, and attending a free health check is a great, proactive way to protect your health and wellbeing. 

What your free health check includes

You’ll visit one of our Deakin Health and Wellbeing Centres for your health check, which takes just 30 minutes and gives you a quick snapshot of your overall health.

Your consultation will be with a friendly and qualified Bupa nurse. You’ll have a glucose and blood pressure check, and discuss your health and wellbeing. You’ll also receive a personal results booklet that includes health information and advice specific to your gender and age group.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve had a health check before – we encourage you to book in for another one. That way, you’ll see how you’re progressing or be able to follow up on any issues.  

Free appointments are available throughout Trimester 1:

Places will fill up fast, so don’t delay!

We’ll give you a free bag of goodies too!

All students who attend a health check will be given a free Study Melbourne welcome pack (pictured), which includes:

You should also check out Bupa’s International Community webpage for some great shared stories, resources and advice, and download the DeakinWELLBEING app for a great range of digital health tools.
