Eleni Stamelos, Bachelor of Teaching
"The School of Education has prepared me to become a Senior Secondary English high school teacher. Down the track, I can see myself returning one day to conduct research, lecture or tutor, as this all encompasses my own love of learning."
How to become a teacher
We provide two pathways to become a secondary school teacher, and offer flexible degree options to teach in your areas of interest. Our teaching degrees include practical placements from your first year of study, giving you an authentic experience of working in a classroom.
Master of Education
The Master of Education is for practicing educators who either want to pursue leadership careers, or examine and challenge their current teaching practice. The degree explores research with one of Australia's leading educational research institutes.
Our research degrees are open to a broad range of areas, offering projects ranging from the exploration of virtual reality and mobile learning, to global education issues regarding refugees and wellbeing.

Teaching Capabilities Statement
In South Australia, all applicants to all teacher education programs require you to complete a Teaching Capabilities Statement as the non-academic entry requirement. This Statement has a set of three questions that encourage you to think carefully about your decision to become a teacher, what motivates you in this decision, and to share your understanding about the role.
