  • Experience workshop style teaching and real-world focused assessments.
  • Available on-campus in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. Not available in Perth or online.
  • A number of scholarships available up to 30%.
  • Only $2,500 deposit to secure your place.*


T2X is ideal for international and local students, whether they are currently in Australia or overseas.

It is only available to students who are commencing their study with Kaplan Business School in the month of September of each year. We will consider offering other accelerated intakes in future if appropriate.


T2X was offered for the first time in 2020 because of unprecedented demand from students and well-informed advice from our education agents.

We know, for example, that many students wish to take advantage of our independently verified reputation for high-quality education but are unable to do so at a time of their choosing due to there being just three intakes per year. T2X therefore provides students with an opportunity to join Kaplan Business School in between Trimesters 2 and 3 via a fast-track study period.
