About

Deakin College - YOUR PATHWAY TO DEAKIN UNIVERSITY

Deakin College has been in partnership with Deakin University since 1996. Since then, over 15,000 students have successfully transitioned from Deakin College to Deakin University.

The College offers courses in the areas of business, commerce, computing, engineering, health sciences, media and communication, and science. These courses are direct pathways to over 40 Bachelor degrees at Deakin University. All courses are conducted on Deakin University campuses at either the Melbourne Burwood, Geelong Waterfront or Geelong Waurn Ponds campus.

The Diploma courses consist of 8 units which are Deakin University’s first year units. This means that once you successfully complete the Diploma and met all requirements, you’ll move into second year of the relevant university degree at Deakin University (conditions apply). As a Deakin College student, you have full access to all the facilities and services the University provides.

Deakin College offers three intakes over a year (March, June and October). The standard duration for Diploma courses is 12 months, but domestic students* can study from as little as 1 unit to a maximum of 4 units per trimester meaning that you can study part-time or fast-track your first year of university in 8 months!
