Admission Criteria

CSU Admission Policy

Applicants for the Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) must meet the following admission requirements. A completed Bachelors Degree (or AQF equivalent) and successful completion of acceptable undergraduate and or/postgraduate study that includes the equivalent of one year (1.0 Equivalent Full Time Study Load - EFTSL) usually equating to eight subjects that identify with the NESA curriculum for K-6. Of the eight subjects, four need to be within one of the seven primary teaching areas: English, Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences(HASS/HSIE), Personal Development, Health and Physical Education PDHPE, Arts, Science and Technology or Languages.
This will form the basis for admission into a primary teaching area.

In addition, Science and Technology and Languages primary teaching areas are also required to have completed an approved curriculum method subject in the relevant primary teaching area to comply with the NESA primary teaching area accreditation guidelines in these two areas. Credit package options apply to students who do not meet the minimum NESA requirements and these students will receive proportionally less credit - based on the number of additional subjects required to meet accreditation requirements.

Upon entry to the course, a standard credit package will be given based on the extent to which the student's undergraduate and/or postgraduate study meets the requirements of the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) for prior discipline and curriculum method study, in one of the following primary teaching area areas:
* English
* Mathematics
* Humanities and Social Sciences(HASS/HSIE)

  1. The extent to which the applicant's previous academic background meets the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements for appropriate foundation studies for primary teaching which can be viewed in full at the Authority's website (see http://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/wcm/connect/ae7db0fc-4a6d-4904-b635-f70147e0dc3c/Subject+Content+Knowledge+requirements+%28abridged%29+Nov+2015.PDF?MOD=AJPERES&CVID=).
  2. The applicant's identified primary teaching area and the specific requirements for the primary teaching area. The teaching area requirements for English, Mathematics, HASS/HSIE, PDHPE and Arts, differ by one subject to the requirements for Science & Technology and Languages.


Primary teaching area: English, Mathematics, HASS/HSIE, PDHPE, Arts
Upon admission students who meet the entry requirements in full are awarded 64 points of entry-level credit in recognition of prior completed relevant undergraduate and/or postgraduate studies.

Students are admitted to the course if they are no more than two subjects short of these requirements.

If two further subjects are required to meet the NESA specifications, credit package EDU36C (48 points) is awarded, which permits two additional subjects to be undertaken within the course.

If one further subject is required to meet the NESA specifications, credit package EDU37C (56 points) is awarded, which permits an additional subject to be undertaken within the course.

If  the requirements are met in full, credit package EDU38C (64 points) is awarded, which indicates no additional study is needed beyond the normal course requirements, in order to comply with the NESA specifications.

Primary Teaching Area: Science & Technology, Languages
Students are admitted to the course if they are no more than one subject short of these NESA entry requirements.

If two further subjects are required to meet the NESA specifications, credit package EDU36C (48 points) is awarded, which permits two additional subjects to be undertaken within the course.

If one further subject is required to meet the NESA specifications, credit package EDU37C (56 points) is awarded, which permits an additional subject to be undertaken within the course.

Graduation Requirement

To graduate students must satisfactorily complete 192 points.

Course Structure

The course structure for the Bachelor of Teaching (Primary) consists of entry-level credit plus 17 core subjects (a total of 192 points). All subjects have a value of 8 points, with the exception of two subjects which have a zero point value and the final placement subject which has a 16 point value.

*Primary Teaching Area Pathway Notes
The Primary Teaching Areas are based on the six Key Learning Areas (KLAs) in the NSW Curriculum: Arts, English, HASS/HSIE, Mathematics, Science and Technology, PDHPE and with the addition of Languages. To be eligible for each Primary Teaching Area students must have completed a minimum of 4 discipline subjects in the Primary Teaching Area in their previous undergraduate and/or postgraduate studies. NESA have four areas in which they endorse primary teaching areas: English, Mathematics, Science and Technology and Languages. Students with discipline study in the other KLA areas of Arts, HASS/HSIE, and PDHPE will graduate with an AITSL recognised Primary Teaching Area.

The Bachelor and Master of Teaching qualifications offer the following pathways to graduate with a Primary Teaching Area (which is a national requirement). To graduate with a NESA Primary Teaching Area in English, Mathematics or Science and Technology a student must complete two curriculum methods subjects in the primary teaching area plus a third Highly Effective Teaching subject in the respective curriculum area and complete the Teaching Performance Assessment (TPA) in the respective primary teaching area. To graduate with a NESA Primary Teaching Area in Languages a student must complete one curriculum method subject in Languages plus the Highly Effective Teaching subject in the respective curriculum area and complete the TPA in the respective primary teaching area.
