Task 1 – English Diagnostic Activity

To personalise study support services at Deakin College, we use an English Diagnostic Activity. It is not a
test. It is an activity to help you see what you might find difficult in your studies at College and how we can
help you be successful.

This exercise is required and all new students must attempt it.

What is it?

        A 30-minute online exercise to show you (and us) what you might need help with.
        This is not assessing your English language ability, but it is an exercise using various academic skills
         designed for both native English speakers and English as an alternate language (EAL) speakers.
        There are 38 required questions, which are mostly multiple choice.
Steps:

    1. Use this link: https://forms.gle/59DxQAAEn1w37hcu7 (Chrome works best).
    2. Have a look at your results and feedback (bookmark the results page to access info later).
    3. Contact a Student Learning Advisor if you need help.
Why is it important?

Throughout your time at Deakin College, you will be expected to participate in class discussions and
presentations, listen and take notes in lectures, and research and write assignments and exams. These are
all skills that require a good understanding of academic English. Improving your language skills will help you
to get better grades in assignments and exams.

The results

The results will not affect your grades at Deakin College and do not appear on your academic transcript.
They are used to identify areas for help and improvement. You will get emails throughout the trimester with
suggestions of ways to improve your academic English.

What academic support does Deakin College offer?

        One-on-one appointments with the Student Learning Advisors:
         https://studentlearningadvisors.setmore.com/

Note: All Diploma of Science students must complete a Laboratory and
                                 Fieldwork Safety Induction Program (SLE010), which is a 50-minute safety
                                 training program and STP050 Academic Integrity which is a three hour training
                                 module. These units are 0 credit point units and do not count toward your total
                                 units. * For SLE102, SLE111, SLE112, SLE132, SLE133 and SLE155 you must
                                 complete SLE010 Laboratory and Fieldwork Safety Induction Program as a co-
                                 requisite unit ** You must successfully complete SLE133 Chemistry in our World
                                 before enrolling in SLE155 Chemistry for the professional sciences (Pre-
                                 requisite).
       Transfer to               The following transfer criteria apply:
       Deakin
                                 • You must complete and pass eight Deakin College Diploma of Science units*.
       University
                                 • You must achieve the required Weighted Average Mark (WAM) for your
                                 Deakin College diploma taking into account all units attempted at Deakin College
                                 (required WAM’s are included under each Deakin degree on the following
                                 pages).
                                 * Transfer to some degrees requires specific Deakin College units to be
                                 completed in order to receive the appropriate credits (see Deakin University
                                 degrees below). It is strongly recommended that students consult the Deakin
                                 University Handbook to check the academic requirements of their proposed
                                 course.

Diploma of Science (Geelong)
   Example Course Plans for Students
   Example Course Plans for Students

   The following are a series of example course plans for students studying in the Diploma of Science at
   Deakin College.

   The following course plans should be used as a guide only. In some cases the order of units may be
   varied. However, choosing course plans that are the same or similar to the suggested plans below
   should, in most cases, minimise clashes and the time taken to complete your diploma.

   How to use the Plans

   Students need to select or choose which Deakin University Course they wish to transfer into once
   they have completed their studies at Deakin College. Deakin University offers direct transfer into the
   following courses

               Bachelor of Science
               Bachelor of Biomedical Science

               Bachelor of Forensic Science
               Bachelor of Zoology & Animal Science
               Bachelor of Environmental Science (Environmental Management & Sustainability)
               Bachelor of Environmental Science (Wildlife & Conservation Biology)

   Optional Support Program
   The Support Program is optional and involves the addition of a foundation level chemistry unit
   FNDH021 Chemistry to the normal track program in the first trimester. As a consequence the diploma
   chemistry units (SLE133 and SLE155) occur one trimester later than the normal track program, but can
   be completed within three trimesters. The Support Program is recommended for those students who
   wish to establish a stronger basis in chemistry. A fee (up-front) is applicable to FNDH021.
