QS World University Rankings 2013 and 2014
Into the wide blue yonder
Its quite common to talk about students
moving through education, from one
stage of schooling to the next and out into
the world. But education itself must move
too move with the times, move beyond
the connes of the walls of the classroom,
or pages of a textbook and open up spaces
for blue-sky thinking that allow students
to imagine endless possibilities for a
future not yet written.
Monash graduates become leaders in teaching practice, public
debate, policy development, and community action around

own potential
Emmeline Be
With an almost perfect ATAR score of 99.85 Emmeline Be knew
she could choose any course she wanted.
Ive always been passionate about education and teaching and
cant think of any better eld to work in. It helps people realise
their potential and pursue many more opportunities.
In her fourth and nal year, Emmeline completed her practicum in
two different schools in Johannesburg, South Africa.
It has been such a privilege to have taught in South Africa. I will
always cherish the opportunity of getting to know the incredible
students and people of South Africa, and teaching in a tiny
portable classroom with fty students scattered around the room
with absolutely no resources. Being immersed into an entirely
different cultural context has reinforced the fact that education is
key to empowering individuals.
Upon graduation, Emmeline landed a job at Balwyn High teaching
accounting and commerce.
Ive just started my rst teaching job, but my dream job would be
setting up education programs for an NGO somewhere overseas,
perhaps in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam or Tanzania.

Ryan Lucas
My studies have helped me learn more about
other cultures. Ive been given the chance to
travel and work in unique places such as the
Cook Islands and the Solomons. In the Solomons
I worked with kids teaching cricket through a
job with the Australian Youth Ambassadors for
Development (AYAD).
Ryan is currently completing his honours project
off-campus while he works at a school in
Alice Springs.
My project will be about Sport, International
Development and Physical Education.

or a combination of these and choose from a wide range of
secondary teaching subjects, graduating with a highly-focussed,
career-ready qualication.
Honours puts
you ahead
The honours component of your degree is embedded into a four-year
course so that in an Australian rst you will graduate with an
honours qualication whatever your chosen educational setting and
whether you choose a single degree or a double degree course.
This means that when you graduate from Monash after four years you

teaching eld.
It also means that if you choose to study for a fth year either
immediately or at some time in the future you will be able to qualify

offers eight specialisations preparing you to teach in different
sectors and elds
offers the opportunity to combine your studies with another
discipline (in a double degree course)
provides you with a higher level qualication than a standard
bachelors degree in the same time as a standard Bachelor
of Education
prepares you to complete an advanced masters in just one
additional year
gives a grounding in research and provides a direct pathway into
research degree courses
Areas of
specialisation
You can specialise to teach in the following education sectors
and graduate with an award that reects your expertise:
Early Years Education (See page 14)
Early Years and Primary Education (See page 16)

Start your education from
your rst day with the
Bachelor of Education
(Honours). Focus on a
single sector (e.g. primary)
or gain a dual-sector
qualication (e.g. early years
and primary).
Combine your studies in
education with a second
course such as science or
arts, to build a qualication
that is as diverse as
your interests. A double
degree course is studied
concurrently, so you will
graduate after four years
with two degrees instead
of one.
If you have completed
a bachelors degree in
another discipline you
can become a teacher by
completing the two-year
Master of Teaching.

I have always had a passion for teaching children,
particularly pre-schoolers, so that led me to study
early childhood education. After nishing school
at home in Malaysia, I chose to study at Monash
University because of its good reputation, not
just in Australia, but internationally. Studying at
Monash has given me the opportunity to meet
people from all over the world and make some
great friends. My course denitely prepared me
for employment I was offered a job before

I completed a TAFE certicate before applying to study
primary education at Monash University.
I must say that my initial intention was to become a
principal. But now, dealing with the kids and seeing the
difference in the classroom, Im no longer in a hurry to
climb the ladder. I am motivated and want to get marks
that I wouldnt have dreamed of when I was at school.

In my previous career as a qualied chef, I enjoyed
the teaching aspect and decided that I wanted to
do this full-time.
Being in an educational environment as a student has
been a great learning curve, and it has been terric
getting an insight into the role during placements.
I knew I would have great opportunities as a mature
age student at Monash. The faculty has been very
helpful from day one, since the time I enquired about
studying teaching.

Raising three kids with disabilities has
given me a real passion and insight for
teaching special needs children. Ive come
to realise that there are not many teachers
within our school system that really
understand special education. Im following
my passion to make a difference in the lives
of children, especially those with additional
needs in our schools. Monash has a great
reputation and the campus location was
perfect for me.

Professor Dawn Penney
Dawn Penney has recently joined the highly dedicated
and experienced team of Health and Physical
Educators at Monash. Her arrival at the faculty
coincides with the launch of the brand new health and
physical education specialisation, within the Bachelor
of Education (Honours). This newly developed
specialisation will provide students with a foundation
from which to take up a range of career opportunities
in education, physical activity, health, sport and
outdoor education settings. It will introduce them to key
challenges and issues that educators and providers
working in these areas face amidst rapidly changing
worlds and in diverse communities. We will challenge
students to apply new skills and knowledge in their own
involvement as participants, teachers, coaches and
leaders in education and community settings.

Make a
change
Upkar Bains
I was working full time in another profession but
knew I needed to make a change. Applying for
teaching was denitely the right move! Being back
in the learning environment is such a great feeling
I know Im in the right place and doing exactly
what I have always wanted. I love to learn and
over these last two years Ive learnt and acquired
so much great knowledge.

English language
pathways
The Monash University English Language Centre is the preferred
English pathway into Monash University. If you do not meet
the English language requirement for direct entry into your
Education course you may receive a conditional offer for one
of our two programs:
Monash English Bridging (MEB)
This program is ideal for students who have narrowly missed the
English language requirement for direct entry. After successful
completion of a 15-week program, you will move directly into your
chosen Monash course without the need for an additional IELTS test.
Note: MEB is not accepted for entry into all degrees. Those who
are ineligible should consider Monash English.
Monash English (ME)
This program is designed for students who require additional English
language development to enter into either the Monash English
Bridging or University courses. Course duration depends on your
current English language prociency and your preferred destination
course. Intakes for Monash English occur every ve weeks.
For more information on English language pathways go to:
