Study to be a Primary or Early Childhood teacher online

Make study work for you. Gain the flexibility to study the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) or Bachelor of Education (Primary) when and where it suits you, online with JCU. Studying online (External) enables you to fit your coursework around existing commitments, so you can achieve your goals and receive the same qualification as you would studying on campus.

The fastest way to qualify for your degree part time

Our Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) and Bachelor of Education (Primary) online courses are built for students with busy lives. You will study one subject at a time, up to six times a year. Each subject goes for seven weeks, allowing you to focus on a single area of study each time, keeping you motivated and engaged throughout your degree.  It also spreads your study load across the year, and you still get 10 weeks of breaks.

By completing six subjects per year, you can complete a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) or Bachelor of Education (Primary) in 5.5 years. This is much faster than traditional part-time study in semesters, allowing you to qualify for your degree sooner and maintain family and other commitments.

Benefits of studying online with JCU

Attending on-campus university classes every week isn’t for everyone. By studying the Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) or Bachelor of Education (Primary) online, you have the flexibility to study ‘anytime, anywhere’. Using any device, you can conveniently fit study into your busy schedule.

All assessments are 100% online, meaning you’ll never need to travel to submit an assignment or find an exam venue.

Our Student Support Service will be with you every step of the way. For every subject, you will be placed in a student group with a dedicated tutor for continued academic support. Each tutor runs collaborative sessions at different times throughout the study period, and is available to answer questions submitted via email, phone or the online discussion boards.
