Raising entry standards for teaching degrees

10 Jul 2015

Students sitting for this year’s HSC will need to achieve at least three Band 5 results, including one in English, to enrol in a teaching degree.

BOSTES has approved a range of options for students who do not meet the entry requirements or who do not apply with NSW HSC results. Students should contact their prospective university for further details.

Increasing entry requirements for undergraduate teaching degrees is an initiative of the NSW Government Great Teaching, Inspired Learning (GTIL) Blueprint for Action and is effective from 2016.  

Further information on becoming a teacher in NSW can be found on the Teacher Accreditation Website.
