Program overview

The Clinical Teaching program is the only graduate program of its kind in Australia. It is designed for high-achieving teachers dedicated to advancing their education practice in early childhood, primary and secondary school settings. This program draws on cutting-edge research and insights to offer the latest teaching methods for practising teachers. It's a progressive way of thinking about education and learning that develops a new class of teacher, an educator whose ability to evaluate data and draw upon research can make an immediate impact on the learning and development outcomes of their students. As a graduate of this course you will be able to tailor your teaching approach to suit individual student needs to achieve the best possible learning outcomes.

As a graduate of the Clinical Teaching course you will gain the same qualification and graduation certificate as an on-campus student because you will achieve identical learning outcomes from the same academics that teach our on-campus courses. If you complete your master’s you will also be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in Melbourne.
