If your Year 12 studies have been impacted by difficult circumstances or other disadvantage, you could qualify for Deakin's Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) to boost your ATAR. Otherwise, you can follow an alternate pathway to your dream course:

Transfer from a related Deakin course or complete single units
Gain a qualification from a Deakin partner
Study at a TAFE or RTO

Currently, bachelor degrees at Deakin require a minimum ATAR of 50. But that doesn't mean you can't plan for the future.
