Master of Teaching (Primary)

  • CRICOS Code: 093411M

What will I study?


During the Master of Teaching (Primary) course, you will learn how to become a confident primary school teacher, ready to lead your own classes. You will become an active member of a school in your first semester. This means you can directly connect what you learn at university with what you learn in the classroom.

The Master of Teaching will help you develop your interventionist educational skills. You'll develop the professional skills to assess, diagnose and support the individual learning needs of all students, and work with learners of all abilities.

Study structure

The Master of Teaching (Primary) course is 200 points of coursework and is comprised of both supported teacher placement and face-to face learning. The course is offered both full-time (2 years/4 semesters) and extended (3 years/6 semesters).

First year structure

In the full-time study mode, the first three semesters focus on your development as a primary teacher, equipping you to teach across the curriculum and personalise learning to meet students’ individual needs.

Second year structure

Place Based Electives allow you to undertake work experience in different education settings, e.g. in rural Australia, in an indigenous community, or in a museum or art gallery. Eligibility is subject to meeting academic requirements.
