Entry pathways

There's more than one pathway into every student's dream bachelor degree, the traditional path from Year 12 to university is just one of them.

Deakin Accelerate

Have you heard about our accelerate program? Our VCAA-approved VCE extension studies program is an exciting opportunity for high achieving students to get a head start on university studies and boost their ATAR.

Pathways that look beyond the ATAR

The Deakin Regional Access Scheme and Indigenous Access Scheme look at a range of factors outside of academic results, like the skills, experience and achievements that make students unique and prepare them for study at university.
