Why study a postgraduate teaching degree?

For teachers already working in the industry, a postgraduate teaching degree is a great way to develop your expertise, specialise, or move into leadership roles.

For non-teachers looking for a rewarding career with impact,  you can become a teacher in just two years with the Master of Teaching if you already have a bachelor’s degree in a non-education field.

This postgraduate teaching degree runs in three streams: early childhood and primary teaching, primary teaching and secondary teaching. You will need to choose a stream when you apply for the course.

By choosing to study a postgraduate degree in education at CDU, you’ll have access to our passionate lecturers with real-world experience as teachers as well as our network of industry partners. ​​​​​

Elevate your career with postgraduate courses in teaching

Nakara Prac Teacher

A postgraduate education course can change your career, whether you're looking to become a teacher or you're already working in the industry.

Within a school setting, a postgraduate teaching degree will allow you to improve as an educator for the benefit of your students. Postgraduate study will also prepare you to manage new and changing education issues as a way of future-proofing your career in the industry.

Teachers looking to expand their career prospects can give themselves a competitive edge for leadership positions like group coordinator, department head and principal.

You can also use your postgraduate teacher qualification in a variety of fields outside of the classroom, like curriculum development and government policy-making.

Not only will you possess an in-depth understanding of education in theory and practice, but you’ll also have highly transferable skills like excellent communication, listening, public speaking, organisation and management.
