Why study the Master of Teaching (Primary)?

The Master of Teaching (Primary) is a teacher preparation program specifically designed for people with an undergraduate degree to qualify as a primary school teacher in 1.5 years of full-time study. The program is ideal for those looking for a career change or who wish to follow their passion for teaching.

The program consists of periods of on-campus lectures, tutorials and workshops, alternated with blocks of professional placements in schools. Strong emphasis is placed on classroom practice with placements designed to provide opportunity for professional development and learning for growth into the role of beginning teacher. All placements are supported by an expert team of university facilitators, whose role is to liaise, visit, observe practice, and support the pre-service teachers and school-based mentors.

Students will gain the benefits of being taught by national and international award-winning lecturers and will be thoroughly prepared for a career in education through access to the latest innovations in teaching research taking place within UQ's School of Education.

This program is 1.5 years full time - it is the equivalent of 2 years (4 semesters) full time, offered intensively over 18 calendar months by using a summer semester.

Master of Teaching (Primary)

Placement courses

Students undertaking the MTEach(Prim) must complete 60 days of supervised practicum throughout the program.

Effort is made to place students within a reasonable distance of their home but they can be expected to travel up to 90 minutes due to public transport connections and incur costs associated with travel and possible lost income. Students are generally placed in southeast Queensland but are encouraged to consider a rural placement. Financial assistance may be available to assist with travel and accommodation costs for rural placements.

Students must have a current Blue Card (Working with Children Check) before commencing practicum, and can apply for one through The School of Education three months before their practicum. The Teacher Preparation Programs Handbook provides additional information about practicum and school experience requirements and is available from the School of Education.
