About

Teaching is a rewarding career choice for those who enjoy being part of children's development. The professional skills learned during Education (Secondary Science)  at University of New England  will be valued by the community and will bring teachers into contact with people of all ages. Teachers are members of one of the largest professions of our society.

Option 1 - You may attempt the Bachelor of Education (Secondary Science) without meeting the above requirement, however you are then required to complete 48 credit points of 'discipline units'. These are units which contribute to your background knowledge for the subjects you want to teach. If you can pass all 48 credit points you will be deemed to have met the NSW Government's requirements and may proceed in the course. However, if you cannot pass all 48 credit points, you may not proceed and will be transferred to a non-teacher education course such as the Bachelor of Science.

Option 2 - Complete an undergraduate non-teacher education degree such as the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Educational Studies and, if you have achieved a GPA of 3.50 or more, you can then apply for the Master of Teaching (Secondary) as a postgraduate student.

In addition to the above, from 2018 initial teacher education students must satisfy the School of their suitability for teaching through the satisfactory completion of a non-academic capability assessment.
