Build your Experience at Deakin

As a Deakin student, you will develop a lot of knowledge within your course. However, it’s also important to build your experiences more broadly, through volunteering, extra-curricular activities, casual work and internships. These experiences will help you develop critical skills you’ll need in your future career while building your resume and network.

There are many ways to build your experience and skills during your time at Deakin – from volunteering roles, to mentoring programs, internship opportunities and global experiences. You can explore them below.  But remember, you can build your experience and skills outside of Deakin too.  Considering getting involved in your local community, sporting clubs and finding casual work or internships outside of Deakin. These will all help to develop your marketability and contribute to you achieving your career goals.

We realise there may be other opportunities to ‘build your experience’ at Deakin that we might have missed.  To submit an experience for this page, please complete the Build Your Experiences form.
