Master of Teaching or Master of Education?

Our School of Education offers two postgraduate courses that sound similar, but are tailored to students seeking different outcomes.

Master of Teaching

If you have a degree in an area other than education, these 2-year courses enable you to become a teacher, including completing your studies on an internship in a Western Australian school.

Master of Teaching (Secondary) - Fast Track

From 2022, the Master of Teaching (Secondary) course can be completed in only 18 months. To take advantage of this fast-track option, you'll need to continue your studies during our winter and summer teaching periods.

Our Course planner will give you an overview of how the course is structured and what you can expect over the 18 months.

Master of Education

If you're already in the education profession, this is a 1-year postgraduate degree that'll help you progress your career by expanding your knowledge in a specialist area and fine-tuning your leadership skills.

Alternatively, you can complete this course in 16 months, specialising in either Early Childhood Education or Leading Education, via our Accelerated Online mode.

Increased demand for qualified Early Childhood Teachers

There has never been a better time for Early Childhood Studies at 888电子游戏官网.

Changes to regulations in early learning centres means those centres must now employ a second teacher for 60+ children, creating additional demand for university-qualified early childhood teachers.

So now is an ideal time for early childhood workers to upskill with a degree from 888电子游戏官网. Better still, our recognition of prior learning rules means a childcare employee with an existing diploma or advanced diploma qualification can get a head start into a Bachelor’s degree. This could be as much as eight units, shaving a full year off the course.
