Deakin has won the prestigious Australian University of the Year award twice. The first award came in 1995-1996 for "Outstanding Technology in Education" in which the then Prime Minister of Australia, Paul Keating presented Deakin with the award and commended it on its success despite its lack of "sandstones" referring to its short period of existence as a university.

On 25 August 1999, Deakin won its second award when it tied with the University of Wollongong to win the 1999-2000 prize. Deakin's success was for its "Outstanding Education and Training Partnerships". In presenting the award, the Federal Treasurer Peter Costello commended Deakin and Wollongong in stating: "These are two great institutions. They are the best of the best at what they do".

Deakin has received many academic awards and high rankings by various independent research organisations, including:

  • Top 3 per cent of the world's universities in each of the three major rankings (Times Higher Education, Academic Ranking of World Universities and Quacquarelli Symonds)
  • 5-star rated university, awarded by the prestigious university ranking organisation Quacquarelli Symonds (QS)
  • Awarded Oceania Regional prize in the QS Wharton Stars Reimagine Education awards for innovative Higher Education pedagogies in 2014
  • Sector leader for student satisfaction, first in Victoria for five consecutive years (Australian Graduate Survey 2011-2015)

Five of Deakin's researchers have been included in the Thomson Reuters annual listing of researchers most cited in academic journals, ranked in the top one per cent of researchers in their field. The listed researchers are: Alfred Deakin Professors David Crawford, Jo Salmon, Kylie Ball and Associate Professor Anna Timperio, all from Deakin's Centre for Physical Activity and Nutrition Research (C-PAN), and Alfred Deakin Professor Michael Berk, Director of the Centre for Innovation in Mental and Physical Health and Clinical Treatment (IMPACT).
