What you can expect to study

The program structure is outlined in our handbook. Here you can view all of the subjects you will be studying.

B Advanced Science

You can choose from the following majors:

The Master of Education, Learner Wellbeing testamur major is designed to expand the knowledge, skills, and capacities of professionals working within educational settings to enable learners to be healthy, happy, engaged and successful. Students will critically examine what constitutes, promotes, and sustains learner wellbeing within an educational context from a multidisciplinary, strengths-based perspective. Informed by a whole school and person-centred approach, students will engage in problem solving, and apply pedagogical knowledge to identify and respond to learner mental health needs, and to improve wellbeing and connectedness within educational contexts.

The Master of Education, STEM testamur major is designed for teachers seeking to enhance their knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and their capacity to plan, deliver and evaluate effectively integrated STEM learning experiences. Students will develop specialised skills to enable them to critically analyse, reflect on and synthesise multi-disciplinary approaches to STEM teaching, drawing on appropriate theoretical knowledge, allowing them to plan and deliver exemplary practice in STEM teaching. Students will also gain the skills required to be STEM leaders in schools, developing, enacting and evaluating interdisciplinary curriculum reform for the future.

The Master of Education, Mathematics Education testamur major equips primary and secondary school teachers of mathematics with specialist skills, knowledge, and dispositions to assist them in strengthening their role as mathematics specialist teachers within primary or secondary school settings. Through a combination of course content and independent research, graduates will develop deep mathematical pedagogical content knowledge, a strong understanding of the importance of research-based enquiry to inform teaching and leading in mathematics, and skills in mentoring and coaching colleagues.

The Master of Education, Leadership testamur major is designed for educational leaders who value the strategic importance of leadership and its impact on educational success. This major critically explores concepts and practices of leadership across educational contexts. It recognises that leadership emerges and is enacted in diverse ways, is crucial for fostering change and educational transformation and that educational leaders are responsible for developing the leadership capacities of others. Students will develop knowledge of research principles and practices in educational leadership and review and evaluate theory and scholarship. Students will apply concepts and theories to bodies of knowledge and practice. They will design original evidence-based investigations and analyse and synthesise a range of data to reframe problems and generate solutions. They will develop and evaluate innovations to improve learning outcomes in workplace settings, communicate their findings to diverse audiences and contribute to scholarship in educational leadership.

The Master of Education, Leadership and Management testamur major is designed for emergent and experienced professional leaders in a range of educational organisations, locally and internationally. Subjects are drawn from the School of Education and the School of Business, providing professionals with comprehensive skills and knowledge to strategically foster teaching and learning, and effectively lead organisations in an ever-changing business climate. Students will apply their knowledge and skills to solve a real-world education business management problem through action-learning. Focusing on theory and practice, the specialisation has significant application to the global and dynamic context of education.

PG Direct CSP

A Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) is one that is subsidised by the Commonwealth and applicable only to Domestic students. This means that the Australian Government pays part of your fees towards your program, therefore reducing your program fees, and the remaining amount is paid by you, this is considered your Student Contribution.

To work out how much your Student Contribution will be before you study, you will first need to find out the Student Contribution band your subjects fit into based on their general discipline area.

You can then calculate your student contributions to work out the total amount of your contribution.

The Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) is a range of loans introduced by the Australian Government from 2005 to provide fee payment assistance to eligible students. Loans are for Australian citizens studying in Australia or overseas. Permanent residents who hold a humanitarian visa are also eligible if studying in Australia.

If eligible you may be able to defer all or part of your Student Contribution through the HECS-HELP loan program. You may also be eligible for OS-HELP if undertaking studies overseas.

New Zealand citizens and holders of an Australian permanent resident visa (other than an Australian permanent humanitarian visa) are generally not entitled to HECS-HELP assistance. If you are a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident your Student Contribution amount must be paid in full by the census date.

However, the Australian Government has passed new legislation that changes the way some New Zealand citizens, who hold a Special Category Visa (SCV), studying in Australia will pay their fees. More information is available on the Changes to fees for New Zealand Citizens webpage.
