Deakin University provides higher education for suitably qualified Australian and full fee-paying students through open campus flexible learning modes in which the place, time, mode and pace of study are flexible.

The University operates across six campuses: Melbourne (Burwood), Geelong (Waurn Ponds), Waterfront (Geelong City), Rusden, Toorak and Warrnambool. Academic studies are coordinated through the faculties of: Arts; Business and Law; Education; Health and Behavioural Sciences; and Science and Technology.

Education and training is available at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels, covering the disciplines in these faculties and including professional courses, mid-career professional development courses and postgraduate studies by course work and research.

Deakin's key offerings for the textile industry are flexible education, and research expertise. Deakin is the only university in Australia with a growing team of postgraduate students carrying out basic and applied research in fibres and textiles. Ten Masters and Doctoral candidates are now conducting research for industry. Deakin's major textile research areas are fibre science and metrology, textile technology and management, textile chemistry, environmental issues and clean technology, composite materials, and technical textiles.

Deakin has considerable expertise in partnering industry to gain government funding through mechanisms including the Australian Research Council's Strategic Partnership grants with Industry, Education and Research (ARC SPIRT). More than $1 million in Deakin research projects is funded by organisations including the Rural Industry Research and Development Corporation, the ARC, and the Alpaca Cooperative.
