About the Course
The Master of Teaching (Primary) is a pre-service teaching qualification that integrates Christian faith and worldview with academic learning and teaching practice.
Accredited with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), the Master of Teaching (Primary) provides the approved fourth year preservice teacher education for teacher registration with the NSW Institute of Teachers.
The Master of Teaching (Primary) is taught over four semesters which can be taken over two years full time or up to four years part time.
Mode of Study
The Master of Teaching (Primary) is delivered via online learning. Students have access to WI Online which provides access to the courses, resources, discussion forums, discussion posts for general information, grade books, staff and student information, calendar dates, and a digital drop box for assignments which are submitted electronically. Tutors are in regular contact with students to answer questions on the study material and provide feedback on assignments.
On Campus Requirement
A compulsory orientation is run at the beginning of the course. This orientation includes workshops, tutorials, introduction to the semester’s units plus a child protection workshop. The orientation also familiarises students with the online delivery system, the student portal: WI Online.
Candidates should hold a university undergraduate degree and satisfy the prerequisites for admission in having completed degree studies relating to the primary curriculum as specified by the NSW Institute of Teachers.

FEE-HELP is available.
FEE-HELP (FEE Higher Education Loan Program) is a loan facility for eligible students (ie, an Australian citizen or those who hold a permanent humanitarian visa) enrolled in fee-paying, postgraduate non-research courses.
FEE-HELP is similar to the deferred payment arrangements allowed to undergraduate students through HECS-HELP. It enables eligible students to apply for a loan from the Commonwealth Government to cover part or all of their tuition fees, and to defer repayment of the loan (CPI linked) until their income reaches the minimum payment threshold. The main difference is that the course fees the loan covers are not set within ranges stipulated by the government, but are each institution's discretion.
