At Deakin, we love our Cats

Deakin University is the official education partner of the Geelong Football Club. This partnership encompasses sport science, player and community development, joint research initiatives and graduate employment opportunities.

It also facilitates student engagement and internship opportunities and provides an alternative training ground for Geelong players.

Recently, Geelong AFL and AFLW players welcomed some of our international students to the ever-popular Deakin Cats Footy Clinic, to teach them about the rules of one of Australia’s most beloved sports. Check out what our students got up to in the video below!
