About Australian Teachers CollegesCompleting an Australian teachers’ education program provides an excellent opportunity to obtain the teaching qualifications you need, while experiencing the excitement and culture of living in a new country.
Australian teachers colleges name their graduate-entry education/teaching degrees in various ways (e.g., Graduate Diploma of Education, Postgraduate Diploma in Education, Master of Teaching). These are comparable to graduate-entry Bachelor of Education degrees offered at universities in Canada.
Australia’s Graduate Diploma in Education and Postgraduate Diploma of Education programs are basic, one-year teacher certification programs in which correspond to the one year graduate-entry Bachelor of Education programs in Canada.
Canadian students should note that these programs train students to become teachers. Individuals looking to complete a Master of Education degree must first complete a teacher education program. They may then apply to a Master of Education program to further their educational studies and prepare them for managerial/administrative careers in the field of education.
