Kangan Institute

Whether you are just starting out at Kangan, or have completed your Diploma / Advanced Diploma, Deakin will provide you with the tools and advice to help you transfer to Deakin when you are ready.

Kangan Institute provides pathway students with the opportunity to enter university with credit for prior learning of up to one and a half years towards a Bachelor's degree and up to 6 months for a Master's degree.

Many students complete the first part of the program at Kangan, then transfer to Deakin University to complete their degree. Students are required to meet minimum entry requirements and, in some cases, may complete a Bachelor's degree with a further two years study.

The program offers an ideal alternative pathway for students who:

  • Are seeking a suitable supportive learning environment or those who prefer support for their transition into life and study in Australia;
  • Want the benefits of a vocational TAFE qualification with a university degree;
  • May have been unsuccessful in obtaining direct entry into university; or
  • Are seeking a competitively priced first year of study.

Contact pathways@deakin.edu.au for further assistance.
