Professional recognition

The School of Education is dedicated to fostering excellence across a number of important areas of education including early childhood, primary, secondary and higher education.

Undergraduate courses are accredited by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) and are nationally recognised. Graduates meet the qualification requirements for accreditation/registration as a teacher in schools across all Australian states and territories.

The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education (Primary/Early Childhood) and the Graduate Diploma of Education Early Childhood have accreditation with the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

Usually, Australian teacher qualifications are recognised internationally, but students need to check with potential employers and teacher registration authorities in other countries regarding accreditation requirements.
