Program Description

The Bachelor of Education - International is a four-year, full-time, honours degree (Level 8) designed to qualify students to teach in primary schools with the addition of an international study component. Accredited by the Teaching Council, it seeks to equip participants with the competence to teach at all levels of the primary school.

It comprises the on-campus study and school placement and also gives students the opportunity to specialise in specific areas in education or the liberal arts. Insightful and challenging, the BEd programme will prepare you for a varied and rewarding career as an educator.

Structure

Year 1 – Learner

During Year 1 of the programme, the student will undertake a core programme of study designed around the theme of ‘Learner’. During the first semester, the student will be introduced to academic life and will experience a specific programme of study that complements the first academic modules. This year comprises the on-campus study and professional placement in a primary school. See below for specific modules.

Year 2 – Teacher

During Year 2 the student will undertake a core programme designed around the theme of ‘Teacher’. During this year, students explore a broad range of subject areas and disciplines including the study of inclusive education for children with special educational needs.

Year 3 – Leader

During Year 3 the student will become more responsible for the direction of core elements of the degree and will choose electives in both Education and Liberal Arts. In Year 3 students explore a broad range of subject areas and disciplines including the study of early childhood education. See below for specific modules.

Year 4 – Researcher

This final year comprises the on-campus study and extended professional placement. The student will spend the first semester on placement engaged in a wide variety of activities such as being responsible for teaching various class groupings for prolonged periods of time, bringing a particular curricular focus to host schools and learning about aspects of school life outside of the classroom. The student will experience teaching in the infant classes and another class grouping of their choice. During this year, students compile a portfolio showcasing samples of work completed over the course of the degree to date and will also complete a dissertation or a final suite of elective modules together with capstone modules that include a focus on leadership and policy in education.
