The educational landscape is rapidly changing. Research is advancing our understanding of how and why we learn, and digitisation continues to transform classrooms around the world. With schools and educational organisations facing new challenges, there’s a strong need for educational professionals who can leverage new opportunities and transform the way students learn.

Explore the big issues in education today. Learn the latest evidence-based approaches to learning and grow your career as an educator and leader. You'll study core subjects on educational leadership, psychology and digital technologies, then dig deeper through a specialisation in inclusion and diversity, leadership and management, or language and literacy. When you choose a specialisation, you'll graduate with it on your academic transcript so future employers can recognise your expertise.

We encourage educators to experiment, innovate, adapt, and address the important challenges of our sector. Learn how to engage with curriculum reforms and design educational programs. Explore the science of language and reading, and understand how to use data to inform evidence-based practice.

Career outcomes

After graduation, you will be well-equipped to find work in educational leadership, community development, workplace mentoring, industry innovation, as well as online and offline social networks.
