Undergraduate

Our preservice undergraduate Bachelor of Education degree can be combined as a dual degree with a range of various undergraduate degrees. The Education program at UNSW prepares graduates to pursue a career in secondary school teaching in New South Wales, Australia and overseas. Our students undertake professional practice in at least two different secondary schools under the supervision of experienced teachers.

Our degrees include:

Increased academic standards for studying teaching

From 2016, future teachers will need to meet the BOSTES increased academic standards to study an accredited undergraduate teaching degree in NSW.

All UNSW undergraduate initial teacher education programs are accredited dual degrees which meet the new standards by requiring students to pass a full year of academic studies in their chosen teaching area(s) before studying teaching methods or going into schools on placement.

Achieving three Band 5 HSC results is therefore not an entry requirement but is still expected knowledge.

As a part of the increased standards, all students will also be required to pass a national literacy and numeracy test as part of their program requirements.
