What is the difference between the Master of Teaching and the Master of Education?

The Master of Teaching is designed for graduates of any discipline who wish to become a teacher. We have five streams available, each focusing on a different age group:

  • Early Childhood (birth–5 years)
  • Primary (5–12 years)
  • Early Childhood and Primary (birth–12 years)
  • Secondary (12–18 years) and
  • Secondary Internship program (12–18 years).

The Master of Education is for professionals who would like to explore contemporary education issues and pursue their interests through one or two of eight specialisations and over 50 electives.

Applications for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship and Master of Teaching (Secondary) are now open. Applicants can apply for up to four programs in one application. For domestic students considering the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship, we highly recommend applying for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) program at the same time. Eligible applicants who are unsuccessful for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship, can then proceed to the Master of Teaching (Secondary) in February 2022.

  • Apply now for the next intake for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) in February 2022.
  • Apply now for the next intake for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship (domestic students only) in November 2021.
