About this course

This course is designed to orient students to the field of education at a postgraduate level. It is suited to students who have a first qualification in a discipline other than education. It is also a pathway for students who do not yet meet the entry requirements for the Master of Education.

  • develop understanding of recent issues and debates across policy and practice
  • apply critical perspectives on substantive and contemporary issues and ideas
  • demonstrate analytical skills in evaluating, synthesising and communicating academic concepts
  • build confidence in academic practice at an advanced level.
