School of Education
Southern Cross University's School of Education is a dynamic learning community dedicated to fostering excellence across early childhood, primary, secondary, vocational education and training and higher education.
All of our primary and secondary teaching degrees are approved by the NSW Institute of Teachers, are national recognised, and include significant practical teaching experiences. Our courses are offered at the Lismore, Coffs Harbour and the Gold Coast campuses and most include external and flexibly delivered study options.
Working closely and collaboratively with our students, we encourage the highest possible standards in order to develop outstanding teachers for the future. We enjoy strong, collaborative links with teachers, schools and other educational organisations across the region, as well as with the national and international educational community.
At the School of Education we are committed to quality in our teaching and to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge through scholarly research, providing quality professional development opportunities for practising teachers and professionals.
Become a secondary teacher in just one year
If you already hold a Bachelor degree in a discipline other than education, you could become a qualified secondary school teacher in just one or two years of study.
Time is running out
Changes in Australian teacher registration requirements mean that 2014 will be the last year Southern Cross University can offer a one-year full-time graduate-entry teaching degree. Depending on your undergraduate degree you may be eligible for entry into our one-year Graduate Diploma of Education or the two-year Bachelor of Education (Secondary).
