Nothing makes great teachers like great teachers, and USC has been rated five stars for teaching by the Good Universities Guide 12 years in a row.

USC also has one of the highest employment rates for teaching graduates in Australia. According to QILT (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching), 85.7% of USC teacher education graduates are employed full time – one of the highest rankings in Australia.

Help shape the next generation

An education degree is your pathway to a rewarding teaching career. As a teacher, you’ll encourage young people to achieve their best and make a real difference in your community.

Demand for qualified teachers is increasing across Australia. Because of our growing population and the age of the current teaching workforce, it’s estimated Australia will need almost 49,000 additional school teachers by 2020 *, with a particular need for specialist teachers in science, maths and languages.
