Support and delivery

Set your own timetable

Designed for maximum flexibility, this teaching degree allows you to study anytime, anywhere.

There are 3 teaching periods a year, and you can enrol in 1 to 4 units every period.

On average, for a single unit, you should allow for approximately 8 hours of active learning each week. Active learning includes engaging with learning materials and activities, interaction with other students, readings and assessment tasks.

Depending on your study load, you can finish your teaching degree in as little as 3 years.

Possible study loads

  • Accelerated: 12 units per year over 3 years
  • Full-time: 8 units per year over 4 years
  • Suggested: 6 units per year over 5 years
  • Part-time: 4 units per year over 6 years

There are study breaks between teaching periods and over Christmas / New Year so you can take time out during your course.

Supportive, interactive learning

With many distance education courses, content originally designed for traditional face-to-face learning is adapted for online use, which may not always be practical.

With Swinburne Online, your course has been developed specifically for online delivery, so you get the most out of your online studies.

Your course content is supplemented by online communication technologies such as discussion boards, chat sessions, email and blogs.

  • Access your course through an online learning platform
  • Excellent tutor-student ratio
  • Regular feedback and guidance from eLearning Advisors

In addition, Student Advisors are available by email and phone 7 days a week to respond to any queries you may have around your study.

These Student Advisors will provide information on admissions, enrolment and re-enrolment, course advice, policies and regulations and academic assessments, and assist you with any technical issues you may experience.

Upon completion of this unit, you'll be more confident about online study.
