Bachelor of Arts (Conditional Entry to Master of Teaching - Secondary)

Flinders University

This pathway provides students with flexibility, choice and guaranteed entry to the 2 year Master of Teaching (Secondary) following successful completion (to a required standard) of the 3 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 mid year, it will take them at least 5 and a half years to complete the Master of Teaching as it does not offer midyear entry.
