Other specialisations such as a research pathway and a student-led pathway allowing you to select eight courses from the many Education postgraduate courses enables you to customise your studies to your personal and professional goals, which is available within the Masters of Education Full-Fee Paying program.

A significant component of your studies will be research courses designed to expand your understanding of the role of education in society, and the challenges faced by educators in rapidly changing, multicultural communities. Choose between an Applied Research or Advanced Research project.

The Applied Research has a practical emphasis on innovative and creative approaches to solving current issues in the education environment. You can use your own experiences as a backdrop to your studies and develop a research project based on your current workplace.

The Advanced Research specialisation will allow you to gain an in-depth understanding of your educational interests. Using research methods, you will explore different approaches to contemporary education, and develop professional research skills essential to undertaking further learning. This specialisation offers a research-based pathway into a Ph.D., subject to meeting all entry requirements.
