Course summary

Students can study in an area of their interest through specialisations, as well as a broad range of education and general electives. This is in addition to discipline and curriculum studies in English; mathematics; human society and its environment; science and technology; creative arts; and personal development, health and physical education.

In their first year, students study essential foundational content for teaching in primary schools. Starting in their second year, and continuing throughout the remainder of their degree, students study curriculum, pedagogy and effective teaching strategies. They also begin significant blocks of professional teaching experiences in primary schools to prepare them thoroughly for teaching practice. 

These experiences give students the opportunity to put theory into practice and to observe and reflect on the dynamics of the education environment. Students graduate with broad capabilities to increase employment opportunities in primary schools and other education-related fields.

Entry into our teaching degrees is based on an indicative ATAR of 70 or OP of 13 with no additional prerequisite entry requirements. Our education degrees are combined with a Bachelor of Arts to ensure a comprehensive foundation for our education students in relevant discipline areas like mathematics, English and science.
