MTeach FAQ

Semester 1 Commencement

Below you will find two PDFs that detail the recommended enrolment patterns for your course (full time, three unit pathway or part time).

Semester 2 Commencement

Below you will find two PDFs that detail the recommended enrolment patterns for your course (two and a half year pathway or part time).

Please note - there is no two year pathway from Semester 2 commencement from 2017 onwards.

NOTE: There are two important terms used in the below information:

  • Co-requisite – A unit that must be completed concurrently with another unit
  • Concurrent units – Units that must be enrolled in and studied in the same semester

The Master of Teaching has two sets of requisites:

  • Co-requisite Paired (6.25 Credit Point) units
  • Professional Experience requisites

Please be aware these two sets of requisites are checked regularly and thoroughly throughout the semester. If the accurate enrolment pattern hasn’t been followed you will be deemed ineligible for either the Paired unit or Professional Experience, and will be faculty withdrawn and notified by email.

Co-requisite Paired units

The Co-requisite Paired units are:

  • EMT607 Preparing for the Profession and EMT608 Digital Technologies
  • EMT609 Languages and Culture and EMT691 Cultural Awareness

These units are weighted 6.25 credit points each. They must be enrolled concurrently to total the standard unit weighting of 12.5 credit points.

Professional Experience requisites

A review of the theory requisites for Professional Experience was conducted in 2015. The outcome of the review was a tighter system of theory requisites, to ensure students are adequately prepared to demonstrate competency against the Professional Experience assessment criteria.

To be eligible for Professional Experience you are required to be concurrently enrolled in, or have successfully completed, the relevant theory unit(s). The Professional Experience requisites are outlined in the PDFs below. Please ensure you read the information relevant to your commencement.

All applicants are required to provide a non-academic personal statement which is used to assist in the selection of students into all Initial Teacher Education (ITE) courses at the University of Tasmania.

Instructions on submitting your statement and completing the NACAT are provided during the application process.


  • There is a limit of two (2) units per person
  • To be eligible you must have successfully completed a prior semester in your Master of Teaching degree.
