There are multiple ways to get into teaching at ACU. If you didn’t meet the entry requirements for your course, completion of a pathway course could lead to a teaching degree. Previous work experience, tertiary study or volunteering may also give you the edge you need.
Study teaching, reach the world
When you study at ACU, you could do a placement in remote or rural Australia, find yourself in a classroom on a remote Pacific island, in Nepal or in South Africa or do a study tour in Rome. Whatever your journey, ACU offers a number of scholarships to support you on your way.
Learn in the classroom
Our hands-on initial teacher education courses put you in front of the class. You’ll get to teach in schools at different stages of your course to ensure your practical experience evolves alongside your theoretical knowledge base. Our placement program also gives you diverse classroom experiences, so you’ll be in a better position to choose your future career path. Our primary and secondary teaching degrees can also prepare you to teach in Catholic, government and other faith-based schools within Australia.
