Millie Taylor

Bachelor of Criminology/Bachelor of Laws

I chose to study at Deakin because of the flexibility it encourages. I could take my degree at a slower pace with part-time study or could accelerate my degree through Deakin’s trimester system and have my degree completed in a shorter amount of time.

Trent Jansz

Bachelor of Criminology

When I first started at Deakin, I was a kid who had lofty ideals of changing the world but no idea how to start. Deakin helped me ground those ideals without feeling silly for having them in the first place.
