Entry requirements

Applicants require a three year bachelor degree in any discipline other than teaching (or equivalent). Applicants who do not meet the English language entry requirement may fulfil this requirement with a score of 7.0 in the IELTS (Academic) test, with no less than 7.0 in any of the four skill areas, and a score of no less than 7.5 in speaking and listening. Alternatively, applicants may meet the English language requirement with an internet-based TOEFL result of 100 with a minimum of 25 in speaking and writing, and a minimum of 22 in reading and listening. Selection will be based on applicant background, and will require prior studies from disciplines that enable students to qualify for two single teaching method subjects or one double method. Methods usually require a background of study for at least two years, however preference will be given to applicants who have a three year major study in at least one discipline area. A double method requires at least three years of study in the discipline.
