Join a whole new class of teachers with a Master of Education (International Baccalaureate) Diploma Programme or a Graduate Certificate of Education (International Baccalaureate) Diploma Programme, at the University of Melbourne. Offered by the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, number one in Australia for Education and top five in the world*, these courses are designed to provide qualified secondary teachers who teach students aged 16-19 years and administrators, with the theoretical and practical skills related to the IB Diploma Programme and IB education more broadly.
