Admission information

Admission requirements

In accordance with the Rules Governing Admission and Enrolment [000966], Academic Senate is responsible for prescribing the academic requirements for admission to any program. This includes special admission. Applicants will need to meet any additional selection criteria specified for the program in the Program Handbook or in the current edition of the University Admissions Centre (UAC) guide.

There are a number of ways to gain entry to the Bachelor of Teaching (Humanities)(Honours) program at the University of Newcastle. Students may be considered for admission on the basis of:

1.  NSW HSC or equivalent - irrespective of age of qualification.

2.  The entry criteria and a range of comparable pathways to teaching degrees that satisfy the expectations of the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) are as follows:

  • Applicants who have achieved three HSC Band 5s with one of those in English* will be admitted directly into the Bachelor of Teaching (Honours) program of their choice.
  • For students lacking just one Band 5 result in English, there is an opportunity to enrol in a summer English course (10 units). Completing this course with a “Pass” will be comparable to achieving the Band 5 in English.
  • Applicants who have not achieved three HSC Band 5s with one of those in English will be admitted to an 80-unit first-year Discipline Studies pathway inside the Bachelor of Teaching (Honours) program of their choice.
  • For applicants in this category, progression to second-year is contingent upon passing an approved 80-unit discipline studies pathway.

3.  Completed or partly completed higher education studies;

4.  TAFE qualifications;

5.  Overseas qualifications equivalent to Australian studies (International);

6.  A University approved special admission bonus points scheme:

  • Educational Access Scheme (EAS); and
  • Regional and Rural Bonus Points Scheme
  • SpecialTertiaryAdmissionsTest(STAT)

7.  A University approved special admission scheme:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Admission Scheme;
  • Elite Athletes Admission Scheme;
  • Special Circumstances Admission Scheme; and
  • Guaranteed Entry Admission Scheme.

Mid Year Admission

In some instances, mid year admissions may extend the duration of the program due to the requirement to complete a year of discipline studies within the program.  However, for many students, it will still be possible to complete within the 4 years minimum timeframe.

Minimum English language proficiency requirements

Applicants who do not speak English as a first language must demonstrate that they meet the University's English proficiency requirement. Further information regarding English language proficiency requirements can be found at the English Language Proficiency for Admission Policy here.

Applicants seeking admission to this program whose first language is not English will need to demonstrate that they have sufficient English language proficiency by satisfying the criteria listed in the English Proficiency Policy.

The New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) (and the national AITSL accreditor) require applicants from a non-English speaking background to demonstrate adequate English proficiency. They define this as an average band score of 7.5 in IELTS with no score below 7.0 in any of the four skill areas and no score below 8.0 in speaking and listening; a level 4 score in all four skill areas in ISPLR; or a PEAT test result of Band A in each of the four skill areas. The NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards requires that the test results be no more than two years old at the time of application.


Credit transfer

Compulsory program requirements

Professional experience courses are scheduled to give students the opportunity to link theory with practice. Students start the first professional experience placement by observing the teacher and working with small groups in the classroom. This is followed by initial experiences in teaching the full class under the direct supervision of the teacher. Students build on their teaching competencies during the 90 days of placement throughout the program, by the time of graduation they have developed the classroom skills and the professional aptitudes of a competent teacher. Some placements overlap with university vacations, so students should check the professional experience dates before booking travel.  See Professional Experience Unit
