Our foundation studies provide a solid base of knowledge in six key learning areas, including literacy and numeracy. Graduates will be equipped to teach in early childhood, primary or secondary settings, depending on their chosen course.

Starting in their second year, and continuing throughout the remainder of their degree, students study curriculum, pedagogy and effective teaching strategies. This includes discipline studies in their chosen secondary teaching subject.

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 the broad capabilities to increase employment opportunities in schools and other education-related fields.
