VU offers a range of courses in early childhood education, special needs teaching, sports coaching, primary and secondary teaching or youth work, and we offer the opportunity to specialise with 16 majors to choose from. We are one of the few universities to offer a Bachelor of Education (P-12) so you can teach at any school level when you graduate.

We are ranked world standard in Education and Specialist Studies in Education (the latest Excellence in Research for Australia 2015).

We have over 300 partnerships with primary, secondary, private and public schools all over Melbourne to make sure you get the classroom experience to graduate work-ready.

VU is always looking for new developments in education and incorporates these observations into your course curriculum.
