The University of Newcastle, Australia

We shape teachers who shape the world

Welcome to the School of Education at the University of Newcastle. One of the top 100 schools of education in the world, we are also among the largest providers of initial teacher education in Australia.

We’ve always been trailblazers. We were the first to introduce professional experience internships, and continue to be at the cutting edge of our field in both teaching and research.

Our graduates are highly sought after and well regarded for their understanding of Quality Teaching, a pedagogical model developed within the School. Our researchers are the recipients of the largest philanthropic grant awarded in Australia, and our research has an impact on a local, regional and global scale.
