"Deakin College is a great introduction to tertiary studies especially for students like me that did a gap year and hasn’t done advanced studying after high school. It is really great that they offer the pathway to 2nd year Bachelor of Psychological Science at Deakin University through studying Diploma of Health Sciences."
