At FedUni, you can gain your teaching qualification in a number of different ways.

You might pursue a Bachelor of Education or Bachelor of Health and Physical Education. These are more general teaching degrees, targeted at specific age groups from early childhood through to secondary school.

Joint degrees can provide the qualifications to teach at VCE level, opening up a broader range of career opportunities. Available study areas include arts, community and human services, mathematical sciences, science, and outdoor and environmental education.

If you already have an undergraduate degree, a Master of Teaching will give you the skills to use your degree in an education context.
