Course summary

It takes a special kind of educator to work with children in their first years of life and schooling. However, the rewards are many as you make a positive difference in the education and upbringing of the next generation of young people.

Our combined degree prepares you to work with children through their formative years. You'll explore inclusive education, the development and learning of children, and the importance of lifelong learning with significant blocks of in-school professional placement.

You complete core studies in both early childhood and primary teaching with discipline and curriculum studies in English; Mathematics; Human Society and Its Environment; Science and Technology; Creative Arts; and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.

As a graduate, you will be qualified as an early childhood educator and a primary school teacher in Queensland and New South Wales. Please note your application must include a personal statement outlining your non-academic capabilities. See education non-academic requirements.
