As two educational icons in the wider Geelong region, The Gordon and Deakin University share a unique relationship. Deakin University was actually established from a part of The Gordon over 30 years ago, and their Waurn Ponds Campus used to be a Gordon campus! Today, this relationship means our students have access to fantastic pathway opportunities, credit transfers and guaranteed places. In fact, more than 20 Gordon advanced qualifications currently articulate into more than 40 degrees programs at Deakin University. Download the Pathways Guide here
