Teaching and Education Courses

Be the teacher they remember

In a fast-changing world, tomorrow belongs to people who are ready for anything. We’ll train you to be a critical thinker, not a narrow specialist.

A Pathway to Teaching degree in Arts, Business, Health Science (HPE), Graphic Design or Science gives you access to a huge range of subject majors. Best of all, you can go on to do a Master of Teaching and become an inspiring early childhood, primary or secondary school teacher.

You can also study Western’s Bachelor of Education (Primary, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education), a degree specifically designed to prepare you to make a difference in the lives of Indigenous students and their communities.

If you’re already a teacher, our postgraduate courses can extend your qualifications across STEM, Leadership & Management, Inclusive Education, Language Teaching & Bilingualism, Curriculum, Social Ecology, Science, and Mathematics. Take your career to the next level.

Making ‘diversity’ meaningful. It's not just a theory.
