The MQPE is a non-award program designed to supplement the MQP and provide a pathway to Deakin University's postgraduate courses in Business and Law.

Combining English language training and academic studies, the MQPE is designed for students whose academic qualifications and/or English proficiency levels are marginally below the entry requirements for postgraduate programs at Deakin University.

The emphasis is on developing the skills necessary for success at postgraduate level. Students who complete the particular pathways within the MQPE will meet the academic and English language requirements for entry into specified coursework postgraduate programs at Deakin University.

The MQPE is taught by the Deakin College and Deakin University's English Language Institute (DUELI). Both institutions are co-located in a purpose built building on Deakin University's Burwood (Melbourne) with state-of-the-art classroom facilities.
