Enrolments closed for 2023 – Join a waitlist for 2024

A non-teaching education degree

The Bachelor of Education Studies is a non-teaching degree that introduces you to the field of education. This three-year degree doesn’t qualify you to become a teacher, but instead provides the opportunity to gain an understanding of Education as an academic discipline in Australian teaching and learning contexts. It may also provide you an opportunity to transition into teaching degree if you don’t have a minimum of an AQF level 4 qualification.

Take the next step in your education career

If your aim is to become a teacher, the Bachelor of Education Studies may provide you the opportunity to pursue a teaching degree, such as our Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Teaching) or Bachelor of Education (Primary), provided you meet the eligibility requirements:

If you have entered the Bachelor of Education Studies via the alternative entry pathway (ie. no AQF level 4 qualification) you will need to pass a minimum of eight units of study and complete a non-academic suitability test such as CASPer before being able to transfer. Upon transfer any units you have successfully completed in the Bachelor of Education Studies course will be credited towards your teaching degree course.

Non-teaching Outcomes

This degree opens doors to employment opportunities in education support, education administration, social and community services and many other fields. Additionally, this degree is a solid foundation for those intending to home school.

If you continue studying the Bachelor of Education Studies you will not be required to complete CASPer, LANTITE, or any professional experience placements units in educational settings. However, you will not be able to register as a teacher after completing your studies.

Entry Requirements

  • Completion of a VET Diploma
  • Completion or partial completion of an approved tertiary qualification (including advanced diplomas, associate degrees and degrees). Additional performance criteria and prerequisite requirements may also apply.
  • Students admitted to the course with prior tertiary studies that satisfy part of the academic requirements of this course may be eligible for academic credit of up to 16 units.
    Applicants without a formal qualification but with significant and relevant work experience and appropriate English language skills, or a suitable Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) result, will be considered if they can demonstrate that they can undertake the course with a reasonable prospect of success.
