The Gordon and Deakin

As two educational icons in the Geelong region, The Gordon and Deakin University share a unique relationship. This relationship means Gordon students have access to fantastic pathway opportunities, credit transfers, dual-delivered qualifications, and some guaranteed places. 

Joint Presentations

We are happy to provide a joint presentation with Deakin to your Year 10-12 students. This presentation can be combined with a range of activities and covers the difference between TAFE and university, course structure, areas of study, and a more comprehensive look at pathways, application processes, selection criteria and fees. 

The presentation usually takes 45 minutes, but can be adapted to the time available and delivered at Deakin, The Gordon, or your school. 

Parent's Information Evenings

Together with Deakin, we provide comprehensive course information to parents through a presentation and expo style information session. 

These sessions are generally held between May and July at a range of locations around Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo and Wyndham.  Dates are provided to schools early in the year.
