    1. Application preparation

    Before applying, you must complete the Teacher Capability Assessment Tool (TCAT). TCAT takes approximately 70-90 minutes to complete and contains both long and short answers used to assess your suitability for Melbourne Graduate School of Education courses.

    Complete the TCAT

    Once you’ve completed your TCAT, you may be required to provide the following supporting documentation:

    • Previous academic transcripts
    • Evidence of degree completion (testamur)
    • Evidence of English language proficiency
    • Evidence of completion of the Teacher Capability Assessment Tool (TCAT).
    2. Application process
    • Submit an online course application directly. If you’re applying for more than one course be sure to number your preferences.
    • If you are a current or past University of Melbourne student or applicant, use your existing student ID/username and password. Registering as a first time applicant will delay the processing of your application.
    • Only submit one application per course with your preferred fee type and study load (full-time or part-time) if applicable.
    • Please note: If you meet the criteria for guaranteed entry, we will automatically identify you as an eligible applicant while we assess your application.
