Master of Teaching
If you already hold a degree in another discipline, a Master of Teaching will qualify you to become a teacher.
This course will equip you with core teaching skills and explore pathways in specialist postgraduate units and research. It allows you to specialise in one of five areas:
- 2 years full time or 1.5 years accelerated
- Clayton, Peninsula or off-campus (online)
- Minimum 60 days of teaching practice
- February intake
You’ll gain professional experience by completing a minimum of 60 days of teaching practice throughout the course in urban, rural, remote or international settings and schools. This includes locations such as China, Cook Islands, England, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, South Africa, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
Our Primary and/or Secondary education specialisations are accredited by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT), the statutory authority that regulates and promotes the teaching profession in Victoria.
Our Early childhood courses are accredited by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA), which qualifies you to work as a teacher in licensed preschools and childcare centres in Victoria. If you plan to teach in a preschool or kindergarten setting then you’ll need to register with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.
Students planning to register as teachers interstate or overseas should check registration requirements with local authorities in case additional requirements apply.
New entry requirement for 2018
Anyone can learn – but not everyone can teach. It takes gifted, hard-working people, who are just as passionate about inspiring young people as they are about educating them. All applicants will now need to complete a non-academic selection component when applying for the Mster of Teaching. You’ll be required to complete a mandatory online 90-minute computer-based test – CASPer.
To see an example of the test structure, schedule your test or take CASPer on your chosen test date, please visit takeCASPer.com.
