Choose Education at Swinburne 

Successful teachers impart more than knowledge. They help students understand and navigate the social and global issues that’ll impact them as they move through life. 

Whether your teaching degree prepares you for primary or secondary school education, you’ll need to understand the world — and use critical thinking skills to help your students understand it, too.

Explore our education and teaching courses if you’re keen to educate and inspire others as a teacher, or if you’re looking to further your own education through our VCE, VCAL and English language courses.

Browse our education disciplines to find detailed course information, application dates, fees, entry requirements, course subjects, ATAR calculator and more.

  • "There are two things that I enjoy most about studying Teaching at Swinburne – the wonderful teaching staff, and the reversed teaching model. Students are enabled to lead their own learning and undertake deeper engagement with materials during workshops led by teaching staff."
