There are multiple ways to get into early childhood education at ACU. If you didn’t meet the entry requirements for your course, completion of a pathway course could lead to an early childhood degree. Previous work experience, tertiary study or volunteering may also give you the edge you need.
Teach a child, teach the world
When you study at ACU, you could find yourself educating children in the remote Pacific, Nepal, South Africa or on a placement in remote areas of Australia. There is even an opportunity to take part in a study tour in Rome. Wherever your degree may take you, ACU offers a number of scholarships to support you on your way.
