What will I learn?

The Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation) is designed for domestic and international students who want to undertake a pre-service teacher degree in Early Childhood, Primary, or Secondary education but do not currently meet the entry requirements. By completing this pathway course you can then enter the relevant Bachelor degree with credit.

Students can select units from the first year of the relevant pre-service teacher degree courses and gain formal recognition for units successfully completed that are beyond the stated prerequisite requirements.

Career paths

Working opportunities in school settings but it is not a teaching qualification.

Students with a Student Visa will need to complete the program in minimum duration, study at least one subject on-campus each semester and must not undertake more than 33% of the program online.
