The School of Education supports current and future educators to develop critical skills needed within contemporary teaching and learning.
With over 50 years of experience, the School has an established reputation for providing educational and vocational leadership in creating knowledge for the future.
Across RMIT’s Melbourne City, Bundoora, and Brunswick campuses, the School offers a wide range of programs and courses starting from pre-university qualifications, including certificates and diplomas, all the way to postgraduate degrees by coursework and research.
By increasing global opportunities for students and designing programs to meet the needs of education industries and professions across the world, the School aims to make graduates the most skilled in the industry. In all programs, students can take part in work placements and exchanges locally and overseas, allowing them to implement their skills while they study, and be prepared for the global workforce upon graduation.
Passionate academic and teaching staff have strong research skills complemented by extensive practical experience, and are well versed in linking theory with practice. Coming from diverse backgrounds, from local areas as well as overseas, staff are able to provide students and research candidates with global perspectives.
An important feature of the School's programs is the pathways they create for lifelong learning. Included in the School's program offerings is the Urban School, providing personalised learning pathways for both domestic students and international students, that combines the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) with the opportunity to study Tertiary Tasters, with courses from Vocational and Higher Education as well as micro-credentials.
Research in the School examines important educational issues and critically engages with debates that advance equity, excellence and efficiency in education, with benefits for individuals and educational organisations. The school leads research that is innovative, contributing to the understanding of education in domestic and global education settings.
The School aims to work closely with our partners, co-creating learning, research and professional development experiences that are engaging, industry responsive and evidence-informed. The School's partners provide high quality work integrated learning opportunities for students and innovative research collaborations.
