Ability to work full time and study Graduate Diploma in Education full time

Can I work full-time and study the Graduate Diploma in Education full-time?

The Graduate Diploma in Education is a 60 point course which means it carries a 25% overload above a normal academic year (48 points).

The lecture schedule is very busy and there is a great deal of out-of-class work to be done in preparation for workshops, seminars and assessment tasks. Since much of this work is focused on preparing you to be an effective classroom teacher with responsibility for the learning of your students, it is expected you will give full attention to the assignment work.

It is therefore unlikely that you will be able to work full-time, fulfil your teaching practice responsibilities and successfully complete the course.

Note: this course is only available to re-enrolling students as of Semester 1, 2018.
