Get the support to progress into Deakin University

Deakin College is a pathway provider for students seeking further education, and the opportunity to transition into Deakin University.

Whether you’ve had a few years off or you’re seeking further qualifications for your career, you may be admitted to the Diploma courses without meeting the formal academic qualifications if you have relevant work experience and/or other acceptable qualifications.

If you’ve had the chance to complete some higher education or vocational training since leaving school, or you have some relevant work experience, you may be granted some exemptions towards a Deakin College course.

“I have been introduced to Deakin College as my pathway to Deakin University since I have been out of the education system for nearly 10 years. It was a great introduction since the units were delivered at a slower pace and in a nurturing and caring environment which helped me grasp the content to a much greater degree. There is much more intensive academic support between the student and teacher and gave me confidence to progress into university.”
