Discover your pathway to teaching through the Melbourne curriculum

Teachers are highly valued in our community and enjoy diverse career paths in Australia and overseas in classrooms, management and administration roles. Training to become a teacher at Melbourne is a unique experience that combines evidence-based theory with placements to offer powerful insights into children and young people, and how they learn.

Join Dr Martina Tassone and hear from some of our brightest current students to discover how you can start your teaching and education journey at the University of Melbourne.  They’ll be discussing how placements work, the challenges and opportunities in the teaching profession and how we can equip you to be prepared for your future career with the new Master of Teaching curriculum at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education (MGSE).

This session is tailored for prospective students (and their parent or adult guardian) looking to apply for mid-year entry in 2022 or start their undergraduate degree 2023. All students and their guest are required to register to book their place. Thank you.
