Bachelor of Arts conditional entry to Master of Teaching (Secondary)

Flinders University

This pathway provides students with flexibility, choice and guaranteed entry to the two year Master of Teaching (Secondary) following successful completion (to a required standard) of the three year Bachelor of Arts. On entry to this pathway students receive academic counselling to ensure they will complete the requisite topics in the Bachelor of Arts to successfully transition to the Master of Teaching (Secondary). Note: if students start the pathway midyear, it will take them at least five and a half years to complete the Master of Teaching as it does not offer midyear entry. Flinders also offers a five year double degree for high achieving students (refer to the Bachelor of Arts/Master of Teaching (Secondary): five year double degree (SATAC code 234761)). This double degree enables students to study Education topics in all five years of the double degree, together with Bachelor of Arts topics in the first three years.
