Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation)
Australian Catholic University - Brisbane

Course outline

The Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation) is designed for domestic and international students who want to undertake a pre-service teacher degree in Early Childhood, Primary, or Secondary education but do not meet the admission rank for a Bachelor’s program and/or do not meet the required Science/English/Maths subject prerequisites in QLD and/or VIC for their desired pre-service teaching degree. By completing this pathway course, students may then be eligible to enter the relevant Bachelor degree with credit.

Students can select the required prerequisite units, as well as units from the first year of the relevant pre-service teacher degree courses. Once you successfully transfer, students can gain formal recognition for the relevant pre-service teacher units successfully completed that are beyond the stated prerequisite requirements.

The Diploma in Educational Studies (Tertiary Preparation) is also available by direct entry application to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Away From Base mode. Early Childhood and Primary units only available in this study mode.
