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.
