The Master of Teaching (Early Childhood and Primary) prepares you for dual registration to teach in early childhood education and across all primary years as a generalist teacher. It has an in-depth focus on early years education, literacy and mathematics.
The program consists of four full-time semesters over two years, as well as one summer and two winter intensives (250 points in total). Focusing on early childhood development and education from birth to 12 years, you will be prepared to teach across the curriculum, with a specialisation in early years learning and development, literacy and mathematics.
This degree will enable you to apply for registration as an early childhood teacher (birth to five years), and provisional registration as a primary school teacher (five to 12 years) with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT). This qualifies you to work in children’s services and schools in Australia with children aged birth to 12 years.

A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
