Overview

The Master of Teaching and Learning (MTchgLn) is an initial teacher education (ITE) qualification. It is an exciting option for graduates seeking to become primary or secondary teachers and who wish to distinguish themselves with a postgraduate qualification.

This professional Master’s will equip participants with enhanced research-based knowledge and inquiry skills, experiences of contemporary educational theory, and professional practice so they can become teachers with the expertise essential to schools in the 21st century. It is also an ideal pathway for those who have a particular interest in and commitment to supporting learning for diverse learners in mainstream schools, including Māori and Pasifika children and youth, learners for whom English is a second language, and those who experience special learning needs.

Students in the MTchgLn complete the requirements for the Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (PGDipTchgLn) and an additional 30-point teaching research course. The degree is endorsed in either Primary Education or Secondary Education, and both are internationally recognised professional qualifications. Students will meet Matatū Aotearoa | Teaching Council of New Zealand teaching standards, and will be able to apply for registration and certification with the teaching council as a school teacher.

The programme benefits from the 135-year tradition of quality teacher education and educational research conducted in the College of Education, Health and Human Development | Te Rāngai Ako me te Hauora. UC is ranked in the top 200 universities in the world for Education and Training (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2020).
