'I had no idea what to expect, or if I was capable of going back into an academic environment after being out of high school for so long. That said, I was really amazed at all the help and support I was given at Deakin College. I've learnt some interesting academic skills as well as valuable life skills, and at the same time I've made some amazing friends and had a lot of fun! As a Deakin College ambassador, I also really appreciate the chance I have to meet Year 12 students and talk to other potential students who, like myself, never thought that they'd ever go to university.'

Jacob Coreno, Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in economics, finance and financial planning.
