The programme is structured to encompass both campus-based and school-based teaching and learning, with the majority of the time spent in schools.

This extensive time spent in schools aims to better enable you to make the links between theory and practice as you learn and practise concurrently in an authentic and supportive setting.

This is an intensive 180-point programme that runs from Semester Two of one year through to Semester One of the next year, with compulsory enrolment in Summer School between these two semesters. Students study a range of Education Professional (EDPROF) courses.
