Why do I need to complete a major sequence in at least one of my learning areas at a tertiary level, and what does this mean?

Keep in mind that a Master of Teaching prepares you for a career in secondary teaching in Victorian schools. To gain entry to the Master of Teaching (Secondary) you need to demonstrate that you already have strong content knowledge of your learning area, gained in the tertiary studies you have already completed.

A major sequence is a total of three-quarters of a year of successful full-time higher education study, usually comprising sequential discipline study taken over three years, e.g. a part in each of the first, second and third years of study, or equivalent study. In most tertiary, undergraduate degrees, this equates to six subjects, with no more than two at first-year level and no less than two subjects at third-year level.
