About Graduate Diploma of Teaching (GDTO) (Secondary Schooling) at University of Southern Queensland

As an international or off-shore Australian student looking to teach outside Australia, our completely online Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Secondary) enables those with a Bachelor degree in a field other than education to become a teacher in one short year. This is a perfect way for you to pass on your expert knowledge in a meaningful and lasting way.


As a secondary school teacher, you will make a difference in the lives of young adults as they learn and grow. The school years from ages 12 to 18 see a child become an adult and set the pathway for their adult lives and further education.

Career outcomes

The Graduate Diploma of Teaching is focused on allowing its graduates to complete a pre-service teacher education qualification which may satisfy the requirements for qualified teacher status, or equivalent, in other countries.

Looking for an alternative path? Teaching-related skills of communication and educational management are also in demand in careers such as sport and leisure centre management, personal training, life coaching and human services.

Professional accreditation

Importantly, as this program's graduates will not be required to undertake a professional experience placement in an Australian school, they will not be eligible for registration as a teacher with the Queensland College of Teachers.

If you would like to be eligible for Queensland College of Teachers Registration you may like to consider the Graduate Diploma of Learning and Teaching (Secondary).
