Study Education

Southern Cross is dedicated to fostering excellence to develop outstanding teachers for the future. We enjoy strong, collaborative links with teachers, schools and other educational organisations across the region, and with the national and international educational community. 

Our combined undergraduate degrees are designed to give you career flexibility and expand your employment opportunities. With the combined degree in primary and secondary education, graduates qualify to teach classes from the first year of primary school through to Year 12. Similarly, our primary and early childhood education combined degree qualifies you to work in early childhood centres and to teach in primary school settings.

Also offering flexibility is our degree in secondary education, which qualifies you to teach in up to two teaching areas from a range of options, or you can complete our technology education degree to become a secondary school teacher in technological and applied studies.

Offering extensive supervised professional experience placements, our accredited degrees can enable teaching Australia-wide. A range of postgraduate degrees is also available.
