Teacher Education conjoint degree programmes

These challenging conjoint programmes produce teachers of the highest quality, who can use their specialised skills to inspire and teach future generations.

Overview

We can all remember a teacher who made an impact. If you want to make a positive difference in people's lives, and to have the satisfaction of reaching people's hearts and heads, then teaching is the career for you.

Victoria University offers two conjoint professional teaching qualifications in secondary and primary teaching. The four-year qualifications BA/BTeach and BSc/BTeach combine study in two teaching subjects with teacher training.

If you already have an undergraduate degree, you can take a year-long Graduate Diploma programme in either primary or secondary teaching.

We want the best for our children, and so we want you to be the best. We will prepare you to go out to teach with confidence, experience and the drive to make the difference for New Zealand's next generation.
