About Master of Teaching (Primary) at CQUniversity Australia

The Master of Teaching (Primary) will enable you to move into a career as a primary school teacher to teach Years 1 - 6 if you have successfully completed a three-year undergraduate qualification. This course enables you to teach across the Australian Curriculum. Within Accreditation requirements, the required Australian Curriculum to be covered includes:

  • Science
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (Including Geography (Foundation - Year 6), History (Foundation - Year 6), Civics and Citizenship (Year 3 Year 6), and Business and Economics (Year 5 - Year 6) )
  • Technologies
  • The Arts
  • Health and Physical Education.

In addition to building the professional knowledge and skills required to teach, the course is designed to foster dispositions for engaging in and contributing to the teaching profession through a commitment to ongoing professional learning.

The design of this course utilises CQUniversity's three-term structure, therefore a two year Masters course can be fast-tracked to be completed in one and a half years.

This course can only be studied within Australia, however, you must be in a location where you can access, or travel to, up to two school sites for the in-school practicum within the course.

Applicants must have successfully completed at least 8 units of discipline studies (at least one year of full-time-equivalent study) relevant to one or more learning areas of the primary school curriculum.

  • Economics and Business
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Technologies

Applicants with degrees completed overseas must provide evidence to support that their qualifications are equivalent to an Australian 3 year Bachelor degree.

Applicants who cannot demonstrate they have completed a Bachelor degree will be refused entry to the course.

The GPA within the Bachelor degree must be at least 4.0.

Please note: Applicants with undergraduate degrees that were obtained ten or more years ago will need to supply certified evidence of current relevant professional work experience in the area of their speciality eg. letters from employers. This experience must link to their previous undergraduate study.

Non-Academic Requirements (Key Capabilities)

All applicants must provide a mandatory written statement in support of your non-academic capabilities, demonstrating you hold the key attributes and motivations to become an effective teacher, as outlined by AITSL (Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership).

In your written statement you will need to provide details on:

  • Why you are interested in becoming a teacher,
  • Why you believe teaching is a great career choice,
  • Your involvement in personal learning and leadership activities,
  • Your participation in community or volunteering activities that promote learning.

English Language Proficiency for Teacher Registration

The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) has set the assessment criteria for English language proficiency for teacher registration requirements in Australian states and territories.

In addition to the academic entry requirements listed, international applicants to this course are required to have an acceptable level of competency in writing, reading, speaking and understanding English.

For entry to this course, applicants will be required to have an IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) that shows an average band score of 7.5 across all four skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing - with no score below 7 in any of the four skills areas and a score of no less than 8 in speaking and listening.

The date of the assessment must be no more than 2 years prior to the time of application.

English language proficiency assessment is not required where the full four years of required higher education study (or qualifications assessed as comparable) have been undertaken in English in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Canada and the Republic of Ireland. (These are the countries accepted under Australian migration policy as not requiring English language proficiency assessment.)
