Hey poms I have a three year teaching degree from England that isnt recognised here as it needs to be four. I have been chatting to a lady at Murdoch uni who will put together a one year conversion course to then allow me to become registered as a teacher. Would anyone else be interested as she cant just run it for one person but will if there is a few more people! x

You can just do a one year Masters or a one year grad certificate in any related subject which will also fulfill the four year requirement of tertiary education. To be honest, I am not sure why she has advised you that.

Surely such courses already exist?

 

They used to exist for Aussie teachers who were three years trained, however, those courses disappeared long ago.

You could always do a unit at a time over a couple of years or so.

 

Student loans are only available to citizens, PR's cannot obtain them either.
