Master of Teaching (Secondary), (Early Childhood) and Master of Education students can usually undertake study overseas as part of their degree. This can be one subject or for one semester.
The eligibility criteria have recently been amended and principally students must not have a status of “At Risk” in their degree and must be able to get credit for their studies overseas towards their degree. For more details see the Exchange Eligibility website.
Core subjects cannot usually be taken overseas. Only electives and the capstone subject Education Research Project (equivalent subject approved by subject coordinator) can be taken overseas. Students returning to complete their final 50 points of the MTeach may also take an equivalent subject to Researching Education Practice.
Students undertaking a semester-long exchange must be enrolled in a full-time load (37.5 points) or a full load (50 points) and, as such, should course plan to ensure that they have sufficient points available prior to departure.
Students applying to go on exchange must attend a myWorld First Step session held by Stop 1 before submitting their application. Bookings are essential and can be made via the Stop 1 website. Attendance is compulsory.
