Bachelor of Science Education (069491F) at University of Wollongong: Tuition: $27,648.00 AUD/year (Scholarship Available)

Science Education at UOW involves learning science and how to teach it effectively. As a science teacher, each student will teach the structure and behaviour of both the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. UOW educated science teachers have practical teaching skills and a high-level knowledge of science.

Science Education at UOW qualifies students to be a high school science teacher. Students will complete extensive professional experience throughout their degrees, which allows them to learn by observation and apply their skills in the classroom. Students may also have opportunities for rural and international professional experiences, and to study overseas with UOW's international exchange and study abroad partners, and to join international cultural immersion programs.

UOW offers up to five Science Secondary Education Scholarships to students starting this degree with an ATAR above 80 and Band 5 in at least one science subject.

During this four-year degree students will study a combination of science and education subjects allowing them to practically apply both disciplines throughout their degrees.

Science subjects including biology, chemistry, earth and environmental science, and physics are complemented with education subjects about teaching and learning strategies including learning and development, pedagogy (the method and practice of teaching), professional teaching skills, curriculum studies and meeting learners' needs.

Teaching is an academically rigorous profession and teachers play a critical role in our communities. Strengthening requirements for studying teaching degrees is an initiative of the NSW Government to ensure that initial teacher education programs prepare high quality graduate teachers who can respond to the needs of all learners to make a positive impact on student learning. At UOW we are committed to ensuring our graduates are of the highest standard by setting appropriate entry criteria and maintaining a strongly developmental program that supports teacher education students from diverse backgrounds with diverse experiences, abilities and perspectives to become the teachers of the future.
