Our School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences delivers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in food and nutrition sciences, human nutrition, dietetics, exercise and sports science and clinical exercise physiology, to prepare our graduates for careers in the growing health and sport sectors.
Our School of Nursing boasts strong and longstanding links with industry partners and consistently produces graduates who are highly sought after by healthcare organisations. Last year, more than 96%* of our undergraduate nursing students were employed shortly after completing their degree, which is above the Australian average.
We offer a Peer Mentoring Program as part of our commitment to providing you with the best possible transition into university life. You’ll receive support and guidance from senior students in your course, helping you to become familiar with the support services and facilities available, while gaining useful tips about studying at Deakin.
