Advance your teaching expertise with an honours degree

The Bachelor of Education (Teaching) (Honours) is a year of postgraduate study that will give you an edge in leading improvements in mathematics and science teaching, providing you with leadership prospects and wider employment opportunities for your future. 

The Woolf Fisher Trust aims to improve the transition into science and maths subjects at secondary level by developing teacher expertise and confidence in these areas.

The Woolf Fisher Trust Honours Scholarship is designed specifically for this honours year. You will receive up to $12,500 to fund your full-time fees and an allowance of up to $5,000. For practising teachers, your in-class time counts towards one of the components of the course, so when you enrol as a full-time student, you will still retain your teaching position.

You’ll be supported along your journey as part of a small cohort with a common theme, where you can personalise your research question to your area of interest.

You will also be fully supported by a Woolf Fisher Master Teacher. This expert in science and mathematics teacher has been seconded from a school to help make the links between your teaching practice and what you’re learning.   

Classes are held weekly in the evenings at Epsom Campus (9 weeks per semester) and there are two block courses (of 3-5 days each) during the January and July school holidays.

Applications for the Woolf Fisher Trust Honours Scholarship close Monday 29 October 2018.
