Deakin University Australia

Deakin University was established by the Deakin University Act 1974. It was the first university in regional Victoria. The primary objectives for Deakin University’s establishment were to create a university in the Geelong area and to provide an opportunity for tertiary education at university level to all qualified persons whether within or outside Victoria by means of distance education programs. Deakin University’s first campus was established at Waurn Ponds in 1979.

Since then it has grown to include campuses in Warrnambool, by amalgamation with the Warrnambool Institute of Advanced Education in 1990 under the Deakin University ( Warrnambool ) Act 1990, and in Burwood, arising from an amalgamation with Victoria College in 1991 under the Deakin University ( Victoria College ) Act 1991. A second Geelong campus was established at the Geelong Waterfront in 1996.

The teaching and research activities of Deakin University now reach nationally and internationally, but the University retains a particular commitment to rural and regional communities and to providing equitable opportunities for people to enjoy the benefits that flow from participation in higher education. Deakin University aims to be a catalyst for positive change for the individuals and the communities it serves. It aspires to be recognised as Australia’s most progressive university.
