Graduate Diploma in Education (Tertiary and Workplace)

Murdoch University

Course details

CRICOS course code: 093250A

Level of study: Graduate Certificates & Diploma


A teaching degree gives you the opportunity to help students gain the skills and ways of thinking they’ll need to solve problems in the future. It allows you connect to people and inspire and support them to reach their potential.

This course could suit you if you’re interested in transitioning to education from another discipline or already working in an adult learning context. For example, you might be working or aspiring to work as a lecturer, adult educator, facilitator, professional development facilitator, instructor or professional trainer.

You’ll explore the concepts, theories and practice of adult education and build on your own areas of interest through your choice of electives, such as mentoring, teaching second/foreign languages and opportunities with e-learning among others.

If you have a Bachelor (undergraduate) degree in an area that’s not in Education, you could use this course as a pathway into the Masters of Education (coursework).
