    1. Receive a Confirmation of Enrolment and apply for a visa
      Once we receive your fees, a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) document will be sent to you. You will need this document to obtain a student visa from the Australian Diplomatic Mission in your country.

      You will be sent a Notification of Arrival form which must be sent back to Deakin International at least 10 days prior to arrival with details of your arrival date and flight.

    DUELI refund policy

    Refunds prior to DUELI course commencing

    Prospective DUELI students are advised that requests for refunds received less than 28 days prior to the commencement of the course will receive a refund of 50 per cent (50%) of the tuition fee.

    The maximum amount retained by Deakin will not exceed 12 weeks of the published
    tuition fee.

    Refunds after a DUELI course has commenced

    Students are advised that:

    • A course is defined as the total length of your enrolment at DUELI.
    • Refunds will not be granted after your DUELI course has commenced.
    • The enrolment and orientation fee is non-refundable.

    Full refund

    A full refund of tuition fees paid may be given in special circumstances. Such circumstances are those that are beyond the control of the student or those which make it impossible for the student to continue.

    The following reasons are grounds to apply for a full refund:

    • A student is refused a student visa by the Commonwealth Government authorities, or
    • An offer is withdrawn or an enrolment terminated because the University is unable to provide the course of study, or
    • The government has limited Deakin’s right to conduct courses for overseas students, or
    • A student is unable to fulfil the conditions of an offer, or
    • A student fails to meet progression rules and is not permitted to re-enrol, or
    • A student provides written advice more than four weeks prior to the commencement of the English language course.

    Executive discretion may be exercised to consider applications which do not comply with the above provisions but for which extraordinary circumstances may exist. A refund application in special circumstances must be made in writing and sent to the Director of DUELI. Proof of payment of the fees (e.g. an official receipt) and validation of the reasons for applying for a refund will be required.

    Methods of refund

    • Students should notify, in writing, the Director of DUELI, any wish to cancel their enrolment, by completing and forwarding the DUELI Withdrawal & Refund Form which is available at deakin.edu.au/international-students/getting-into-deakin/fees/refunds.
    • If Deakin defaults in the provision of the course, the refund will be made within two weeks of the default event.
    • If the student defaults, the refund will be made within four weeks of the University
      being notified.
    • Refunds in the form of transfer of fees to Deakin College will not be made directly to a student. Students must provide evidence of acceptance before any approved refund will be made.
    • Refunds in Australian dollars can be made by cheque and the cheque will be posted to the student’s address in Australia. Refunds in overseas currencies can be made via telegraphic transfers to an overseas bank account nominated by the student.

    For more information please visit:
    deakin.edu.au/international-students/getting-into-deakin/fees/refunds

    This agreement does not remove the right to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection law or pursue other legal remedies.

    Attendance requirements

    Australian visa regulations require overseas students to attend at least 80 per cent (80%)
    of classes to be eligible to continue to study in Australia. DUELI is required to keep attendance records and notify the Australian immigration authorities in cases of unsatisfactory attendance.
