The Bachelor of Education Studies (Exit Only) is an EXIT AWARD ONLY and does NOT qualify students to teach. It is designed to give students who fail the professional component of an Initial Teacher Education degree the chance to graduate with recognition of their completed studies.
The Bachelor of Education Studies (Exit Only) is taught by academics from within the School of Education at the University of Newcastle, whose research is deepening understandings of curriculum, policy, pedagogy, assessment, literacy, learning, and leadership across the education sector.
Graduates will have well developed research, communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills focused on educational studies. These skills are valued by employers when making recruitment choices.
Not Applicable. The Bachelor of Education Studies (Exit Only) is an exit award only.
If you wish to apply for credit for studies completed at another institution, or if you are changing programs within the University and wish to transfer your credit to the new program, go to https://intraweb.newcastle.edu.au/catso/pages/credittransferhome.aspx to apply online.
Applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
Honours is not available.
The Bachelor of Education Studies (Exit Only) has no professional recognition as it is not an accredited program.
International students must comply with the University of Newcastle's English language proficiency requirements. All international students enrolled in the program will be provided with an orientation to familiarise them with the rules, expectations, facilities and services offered by the University. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/students/international/student-support/ to find out more about the support services available to international students.
Students with disabilities who require reasonable adjustments to undertake their program should contact the Disability Support Service before semester or early in the semester. Some adjustments need up to 4 weeks lead time to organise, so it is imperative that early contact is made. The Disability Support Service and relevant Faculty and School officers will work together to ensure reasonable adjustments are provided in a timely manner.
Please note: All students must fulfil the inherent requirements of the programs and courses they are undertaking. While reasonable adjustments can be made, these adjustments cannot compromise academic integrity. It is the student's responsibility to check all the requirements of courses, and consider the effects of any medical condition or disability on their ability to complete course requirements. Please visit http://www.newcastle.edu.au/service/disability/ for more information.
Students who take out the exit award of the Bachelor of Education Studies (Exit Only) will be excluded from any further enrolment in an initial teaching qualification.
