Course overview

Teachers can have lasting impact on the lives of their students, and the very best can inspire students toward greatness.

This combined degree qualifies you to teach up to two secondary teaching areas. Areas include Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Environmental Science, English, Mathematics, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Physics, Modern History, Geography, Society and Culture and Aboriginal Studies.

Your foundation year will feature units across the general capabilities and broader school curriculum. This is in addition to core studies in literacy and numeracy, equity and diversity, supporting learners with diverse needs, assessment, and the use of information and communications technology in education.

You'll complete a program of in-school professional teaching experiences, culminating in an extended in-school development experience to demonstrate your capabilities as a secondary school teacher. Combined volunteer activities and embedded site visits will provide you with a deep understanding about the role of a teacher.

As you will be interacting with young people, upon enrolment you will be expected to apply and attain a valid Working with Children Check for your state or territory. See professional experience requirements.

As a graduate you'll be qualified to teach secondary school Australia-wide, including Queensland and NSW. Please note your application must include a personal statement outlining your non-academic capabilities. See education non-academic requirements.
