Authentic education at Murdoch


As a teacher, you have the opportunity to guide and help shape the next generation. Help to create new leaders and decision-makers, or help a student forge their own path, whatever that may be?

Whether you're teaching children or adults, you'll be there for the 'aha' moments in the classroom. These moments are the evidence that you've ignited the spark for learning, and that you're making a real difference in your students' lives and communities.

Why study education at Murdoch?

With a degree in Education from Murdoch University, you'll learn to become a resilient and confident teacher, who makes an impact locally and within the global community. The demand for teachers will continue to grow locally and internationally. You could be working as an early childhood educator, a teacher in government and non-government primary and high schools, or in the tertiary and adult education sector.  

Murdoch’s School of Education offers Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary teaching for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Delivered by world-class academics, the School values hands-on learning with Murdoch being the first university in Australia to offer SimLab technology - an innovative and immersive learning experience that uses mixed-reality environments, featuring virtual reality and human actors.

You can simulate real-life teaching situations before taking practical placements. The School's work was recognised in 2021 through the Australian Awards for University Teaching with a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. 

Your hands-on experience doesn’t stop with SimLabTM. You'll gain on-the-job training in metropolitan, regional, rural and remote schools, making you highly employable and ready for the real-world when you graduate.
