What will I learn?

Take your first step towards teaching or other education-related fields.

Gain the necessary knowledge to pursue a career in corporate training, educational consultancy, online learning, vocational and community education, curriculum writing, youth services or adult learning.

This degree is also a pathway for students who are passionate about becoming teachers but do not achieve the entry requirements. Students who successfully complete their first year of study (subject to meeting certain progression and non-academic requirements) may apply for transfer into the second year of the Bachelor of Education suite.

This course will not lead to early childhood, primary or secondary teacher registration in Australia, and no practicum is undertaken by graduates who complete the three year course.
