Undergraduate (your first degree)
An undergraduate degree is generally completed between two to four years, depending on the pattern of study and any credit for prior learning you may have. Associate degrees, bachelor’s and bachelor’s with honours are all undergraduate degrees.
Postgraduate (further study)
A postgraduate qualification can be undertaken by students who have already completed an undergraduate degree or possess significant, demonstrable work experience. Postgraduate courses include graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, master’s and PhDs, as well as specialist programs for industry professionals.
New CASPer assessment
From 2018, students applying to all initial teacher education courses will be required to take the CASPer assessment. CASPer is an online, video-scenario based situational judgement test, designed to measure non-academic suitability for teaching.
