Support while you learn

During your Internship, you will receive extensive guidance and support from education experts every step of the way. You will be assigned a Mentor Teacher from your school and a Clinical Specialist from MGSE who will prepare you for the school environment and provide support while you teach.

Our graduates speak very highly of the extra support and guidance they receive through their Internship experiences.

Indigenous support and knowledge

We welcome and support Indigenous students and offer a range of support services here at the University of Melbourne via Murrup Barak, Melbourne Institute for Indigenous Development.

We are working to empower all teachers to integrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in their teaching through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Project.

The student-led representative body, the Indigenous Graduate Student Association (IGSA), support graduate coursework and research students, enable collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students and staff and encourage potential future Indigenous graduate students.

Meet our internship student: Ruth Blair

After her undergraduate studies and travelling to the UK and US, Ruth enrolled on the Master of Teaching (Secondary) Internship. Aspiring to become a specialist or leading teacher in her field, Ruth has found the internship exhilarating and challenging, with a highlight being the strong relationships forged with her school, fellow peers and students. She reflects, "Because we’re in our schools for the full duration of the course, I have had the opportunity to implement what I’m learning about through the intensives and when researching for assignments over an extended period of time, with students that I know."
