Why study with us?

Courses in the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies incorporate key issues and concepts required by professional educators. The program offers high quality professional development opportunities for teachers, corporate and community educators from a range of backgrounds and provides students with the flexibility to tailor their course choices to fit with their individual commitments.

Career Opportunities

Courses in the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies are relevant to educators working in school, rural, distance and higher education, health services, business and consultancy/advisory services. The program is designed to enable educators to select courses to suit their professional needs and enhance their career opportunities.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.

Admission Requirements

For entry into the Graduate Certificate, applicants need to have completed a three year degree from a recognised tertiary institution or possess equivalent qualifications. However, applicants who hold other relevant qualifications together with appropriate high level work experience are encouraged to apply for entry via recognition of prior learning (RPL).

RPL is calculated by the University using a sliding scale relative to the applicants experience and qualifications in industry. Documentation will need to be provided in a professional portfolio. For more information on RPL please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/policylibrary/000282.html or contact the Hub.

Upon successful completion of the Graduate Certificate candidates will be eligible to apply for entry into the Master of Educational Studies program, and seek up to 40 units credit in this award.

Admission to this program is available to Australian students, residents and international students. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/campaigns/postgrad/how-to-apply.html for information on how to gain entry.

For those interested in undertaking the Mathematics Specialisation, who are not current teachers in NSW, please consult with the Program Officer/Convenor prior to enrolling.

Credit Transfer

If you wish to apply for credit for studies completed at another institution or if you are changing programs within the University and wish to transfer your credit to the new program, go to http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/credit-transfer/ and click on ‘How to Apply for Credit’.

Students who have completed relevant studies may apply for up to 20 units of credit.

Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in Educational Studies and wish to proceed to the Masters can apply for credit for courses completed and undertake a second specialisation in the Master of Educational Studies. Please see attached Credit Articulation Pathways document (see Further Information section) to determine which program to articulate into.

Professional Accreditation

Some accreditation is possible within specialisation areas. The degree, however, is not an initial teaching qualification. Please contact Specialisation Convenor.

International Students

International students must comply with the University of Newcastle’s English language proficiency requirements. All International Students enrolled in the program will be provided with an orientation to familiarise them with the rules, expectations, facilities and services offered by the University. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/students/international/student-support/ to find out more about the support services available to international students.

Special Needs

Students with disabilities who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonably adjustments are provided in a timely manner.

Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student’s responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.

Additional Information

The program may be undertaken on-campus or through WebLearn. Please refer to the timetable information for individual course availability and location of offer as not all courses are offered in both modes.

All students can access additional learning development mechanisms provided by the Centre for Teaching and Learning.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can draw on the assistance and support provided by the Indigenous Student Support and Development service through the Wollotuka Institute.

Students undertaking specialisations offered by the RIDBC Renwick Centre should also refer to the RIDBC Renwick Centre Student Handbook above in the ‘Further Information’ section.

Requirements and Structure

All students must successfully complete one specialisation (40 units). See specialisation’s entry below for more specific details.

Students who successfully complete the Graduate Certificate and wish to proceed to the Masters may apply for credit for courses completed and undertake a second specialisation in the Master of Educational Studies.

The program can be completed in one semester full-time or equivalent part-time. Not all courses are available each semester, and the Faculty reserves the right not to offer courses if there is insufficient demand.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS FOR INDIVIDUAL SPECIALISATIONS:

Students seeking accreditation as a Mathematics, History or TESOL teacher through completion of this program need to ensure they will meet the requisite subject knowledge requirements set out by the NSW BOSTES.

The 40 unit Mathematics specialisation is not an accredited sequence. To be accredited with BOSTES as a qualified Mathematics teacher, students are required to have completed 80 units. Refer to the full list of courses in the Master of Educational Studies program.

Students who successfully complete 40 units at the 6000 level may then apply for credit within the Master of Special Education.

The Deaf/Hard of Hearing Early Intervention specialisation is intended for qualified teachers of the deaf, speech pathologists or other professionals with relevant postgraduate qualifications.
