What experience do you need?
Deakin University offers admission to postgraduate courses through a number of Admission categories. In all categories of admission, selection is based primarily on academic merit as indicated by an applicant’s previous academic record.
Applicants for the course must be appropriately qualified and currently registered professionals with a health science background, including registered nurses, dietitians, podiatrists, pharmacists, exercise physiologists and general practitioners.
Applicants should have at least two years’ experience working in their chosen field since undergraduate course completion. In order to undertake the placement component of this course students must be one of the ADEA listed CDE eligible professions, with current registration to practice as such (eg AHPRA).
If you hold a tertiary health related degree in another area (for example in psychology, social work etc) you are still able to undertake and complete your Graduate Certificate of Diabetes Education at Deakin, but you may not be eligible to become a credentialed diabetes educator.
For further information, please visit the ADEA Being a Credentialled Diabetes Educator website. For more information on the Admission Criteria and Selection Policy visit The Guide.
Learn flexibly and pay as you go
You can pay for each program in the degree as you go, making it possible to gain a qualification in a flexible and affordable way.
