About this course

Our teaching courses give you the tools to be the teacher that students remember, by giving you the skills and knowledge to make a difference in the lives of the next generation. You'll get to teach in schools and educational settings at different stages of your course ensuring your practical experience evolves alongside your theoretical knowledge.

Our Bachelor of Education programs are flexible. With a common first year across our courses, you have the choice in your second year of study to either remain in your specialisation or to pick a different one if your teaching passion lays elsewhere.

The Bachelor of Education expands the options for double degree programs by enabling Secondary specialisations to be paired with other degree programs such as:

  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Bachelor of Exercise Science

Combine your love of sport and exercise with teaching to be a standout in the classroom. As a health, PE or personal development teacher, you will understand how the human body works, and the vital role of exercise in health, wellbeing and performance.
