Course summary

This combined degree prepares graduates to teach in up to two secondary teaching areas in English, mathematics, modern history, biology, chemistry, physics, earth and environmental science, personal development, health and physical education, geography, society and culture and Aboriginal studies. Alternatively, students can study one secondary teaching area and an area of interest through a range of electives. This is in addition to studies in literacy and numeracy, equity and diversity, supporting learners with diverse needs, assessment, and the use of information and communications technology in education.

Students complete a number of professional teaching experiences to put theory into practice and to observe and reflect on the dynamics of the education environment. They will graduate as teachers who understand the attributes of inclusive education, the development and learning of young people, and the importance of life-long learning.

Entry into our teaching degrees is based on an indicative ATAR of 70 or OP of 13. Additionally, applicants for initial teaching courses must submit a 1,000-word personal statement outlining their non-academic capabilities. See education non-academic requirements for further information. These entry requirements will ensure that our courses produce teachers with high levels of academic capability, literacy and numeracy skills and the personal characteristics required by contemporary teachers.

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.
