If you’ve already completed an approved undergraduate degree, University of Adelaide's Master of Teaching (Middle and Secondary) offers a unique pathway to a rewarding career. You’ll build advanced research skills and graduate with a competitive edge in the teaching job market.


What will you do in the Teaching (Middle and Secondary) degree from University of Adelaide?

  • Take courses on contemporary educational issues and social contexts.
  • Build understandings of adolescent behaviour, learning and motivation.
  • Learn to support student wellbeing and positive student-teacher relationships.
  • Complete three full-time supervised teaching blocks of 70 days in South Australian schools.
  • Undertake a practice based research project.

Where could it take you?

This degree is accredited by the Teachers Registration Board of South Australia. Graduates may register to teach in South Australia, and in most cases, interstate and overseas (please check international countries for specific registration requirements relevant to those jurisdictions). An education background will also prove invaluable in a wide range of careers servicing communities outside of the classroom.

Note: The Master of Teaching degree is a 48 unit (2 year) program that is also available in accelerated mode (1.5 year duration, Semester 1 entry only).

If you choose the accelerated 1.5 year pathway, you will commence in Semester 1. This option is ideal for committed students who are eager to fast track their studies. There is a significant workload associated with the accelerated pathway as you need to study in Winter School and heavily overload from Semester 2. If you have extensive personal and/or work commitments, it is strongly recommended that you do not select this option or mode of study.

If you choose the standard 2 year pathway, you will commence in Semester 1 or Winter School. This option is the standard recommended pathway for all students, including those who are returning to study. If you are unsure about your capacity to undertake accelerated studies, we recommend you choose this option

Fees are based on the number of units you enrol in. International students: please be aware that accelerated study plan allows you to complete your studies early, which in turn may impact on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).


This program is only available in blended mode and on-campus attendance is required. If you are a continuing student in the program and are unable to attend campus, please contact the Faculty of Arts for program advice.
