About Master of Secondary Teaching at Griffith University

You can choose to accelerate your studies over 1.5 years or study full-time over two years. If you choose the accelerated option you will be able to apply for registration six months earlier than graduates from other universities.

If you are a graduate from a non-education background, perhaps seeking a career change, and wish to teach in secondary school settings, this new degree will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge you need to register with the QCT.

You will learn the theory and practice of teaching, as well as about the characteristics of learners and teachers and the social contexts of education. The degree includes education studies, curriculum studies in two nominated teaching areas, and professional experience in secondary school settings. A maximum of four (4) curriculum studies courses will be taken from the curriculum study courses in the undergraduate degree.

Entry requirements

Applicants will need a completed Bachelor degree (or equivalent) that does not lead to teacher registration (with a minimum GPA of 4.0 on a 7-point scale) with disciplinary strengths in two distinctive teaching areas.

Applicants must also complete non-academic entry requirements to be eligible for this program.

You can explore the key learning areas further on the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority website. Applicants must have completed a quarter of their degree (a minimum of six subjects) in their first nominated teaching area. The second teaching area must include a minimum of another six courses for senior secondary or four courses for junior secondary.

Teaching area requirements for Secondary Education. Please refer to the Teaching Area Guide for more information.

Note: Successful completion of the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) is not an entry requirement for this program. However, if you have achieved a 'satisfactory' result for one or more component of the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Teacher Education (LANTITE) at another institution, the 'satisfactory' result can be carried across with your program application. You are not eligible to apply for a place in the program if one or more component of LANTITE remains at 'unsatisfactory' after two test attempts for that component. Griffith University does not support reset of LANTITE test attempts.

What students think about Griffith University

    I chose Griffith for its state-of-the-art facilities

    I was accepted into five different dental schools in Australia, and I chose Griffith for its state-of-the-art facilities and because it was the only school that offered credit for prior learning.

    Griffith has some amazing facilities that really help to solidify my knowledge, which will eventually help me to be the best clinician I can be.

    I also thought the Gold Coast was going to be the best fit for me in terms of lifestyle.

    Everything from the beaches, to the community, to the vibe of the city is exactly what I hoped it would be.

    I love the wide variety of cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds present across the campus.

    As an international student, I love the wide variety of cultures, languages and ethnic backgrounds present across the campus. The university supports international students through dedicated advisors, events and activities.

    I love studying at Griffith and aspire to be a medical scientist. At Griffith I can access great medical science and medical laboratory facilities.

    My program involves more than 400 hours in university laboratories and 400 hours in real laboratory experience. Hence, graduates have almost 100% employment rate as medical scientists.

    University life here is great and there’s a perfect balance between work and fun.

    Griffith has supported me through my student journey in numerous ways. The International Student Advisors really helped me figure out my study load, they would call and check on me and helped me with finding a house. I’m forever grateful for their support.

    I chose Griffith because of its reputation as the top hospitality school in Australia and because it gave me the option to do a double degree. I also love living in the land Down Under! The people are so friendly and warm, always ready to help or have a chat.
