Pathways into teaching
If you didn’t quite get the ATAR you hoped for in your final year of high school, you haven’t missed your opportunity to study teaching at Deakin. Begin your journey to becoming a teacher by studying an Associate Degree of Education. You’ll be introduced to core units from the Bachelor of Education (Primary), as well as developing the foundation skills required to succeed at university.
Best of all, once you’ve successfully completed your degree, you’ll will be on track to meet the requirements needed to transfer into a Bachelor of Education (Primary).
CASPer is an online, video-scenario based situational judgement test, designed to measure non-academic suitability for teaching. Students applying to all initial teacher education courses are required to take the CASPer assessment.
Be inspired to inspire others
Step out of the lecture room and into real classes. Through Deakin, you'll get classroom experience with our participating schools from your first year of study onwards. You can even take your teaching studies around the world. Learning is a journey after all.
Our Global Education Program gives you an international perspective on teaching. Learn about different cultures by studying in Chile, Nepal, Switzerland or Vanuatu. Our commitment to indigenous education means we also run a program in Australia's Northern Territory.
Education sector links
Our courses are developed in consultation with principals, teachers and the Victorian Institute of Teaching, which means you learn exactly what employers in the field are looking for in new teachers.
