Deferred Students - Brisbane Campus

Students, currently on deferment on Brisbane campus, in the courses shown below, have been emailed regarding changes to prerequisite requirements (text below).  Please note that enquiries should be directed to Courses Administrator, Ms Charlie Kershaw – Charlie.kershaw@acu.edu.au

Dear Deferred Student
Our records indicate you are currently on a period of deferment from the Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching (Secondary – Humanities), ( Bachelor of Education (Primary) or the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary) at Australian Catholic University.
As such I am writing to advise there has been a recent change to the prerequisite requirements for students in Queensland wanting to study undergraduate teacher education programs commencing in 2016 onwards. These changes have been advised through the Queensland College of Teachers.
The new prerequisite requirements are the following:

  • EXISTING - at least ‘Sound Achievement’ in the current QCAA Authority Subject of Senior English (existing prerequisite); and
  • NEW - at least ‘Sound Achievement’ in Mathematics (QCAA Authority Mathematics A and /or B and /or C or equivalent subject from another jurisdiction); and
  • NEW - for students entering undergraduate primary (including early childhood and middle years) programs, at least a ‘Sound Achievement’ in a QCAA Authority Science subject (or equivalent subject from another jurisdiction).

As you were admitted to your undergraduate education course prior to 2016, and are currently on deferment, many students may not have studied and/or passed these required subjects.  If you have not already successfully passed these required prerequisite subjects, you will be unable to commence your course from 2016.

Therefore,  two options are now available if you want to commence your teacher education program at ACU in either 2015 or 2016:

  1. If you commence your course in 2015 the existing prerequisite of English is sufficient to meet the subject prerequisite requirement.
  2. If you choose to commence your course in 2016, you will need to successfully complete the relevant prerequisite subject/s through acceptable alternative study and/or bridging subject/s while on deferment in 2015.

Please find attached information about suitable alternative subjects you can choose to study to satisfy the additional prerequisite requirements. 

Should you require further clarification on this change to required prerequisites and other acceptable alternative/bridging/subject/s please contact the Courses Administrator, Ms Charlie Kershaw – Charlie.kershaw@acu.edu.au
