Why study education and teaching?

Do you require a nationally recognised qualification to teach? Are you ready to advance your teaching career through professional learning? The University of Tasmania offers courses for new (pre-service) and in-service educators.

Go beyond the traditional classroom learning experience.

With school-based classroom placements, work-integrated activities, international exchange and online learning options, you can choose to learn locally, interstate or in a variety of overseas locations.

Our online teaching degrees were amongst the first in the country. Combined with over 100 years of experience in teacher education, we have the expertise in providing students with classroom fundamentals, and the skills to adapt and innovate their classroom practice with new technologies and teaching techniques.

Our range of education courses will empower your teaching, enrich your expertise and advance your career as an educator.

We’re rolling out an updated curriculum from 2018, providing you with even greater flexibility and choice for learning, and opportunities to learn through real world experience.

“...I’m from Hobart and I didn’t want to move away to study. I’ve studied online for the past four years, which has been fantastic and I’ve been able to fit study around my work too.”
