Rubie Orman-Ditchfield, Master of Teaching (Secondary) graduate
“The Master of Teaching (Secondary) allowed me to combine my love of science (I’d previously completed a Bachelor of Science) and my passion for educating, together in one degree. I’m so thankful I made the choice to become a teacher, it has been such a rewarding career. Studying teaching at UniSC gave me strong connections with local schools, along with my tutors and lecturers – who were all incredibly approachable. My peers all became friends, and we continue to share resources now that we’re all teachers.
Every day is a journey as a teacher. We are so much more than just educators. I believe anyone who has been considering becoming a teacher should do it! The boundaries of what you can do, and how far you want to take your training, are endless. There really is something for everyone.”

Peter Sanson, Master of Education graduate
“When I enrolled in the Master of Education program at UniSC, I felt out of my depth, but meeting like-minded professionals in the tutorial group immediately put my mind at ease. As a group of education professionals, we were able to support each other as we navigated the new terrain of the postgraduate world. The course coordinators and supervisors also provided ongoing support and guidance, which helped our group build confidence. I also appreciated how the course coordinators were able to challenge me with my research topic, which helped me learn as a novice researcher.
Professionally, I found the Master of Education program extremely rewarding. Through the process of research, I saw the education system through a different lens, which gave me an appreciation for the importance of research, in education and across all fields. Completing a research study in my own school gave me the opportunity to intentionally collaborate with school leaders and staff, and use data to inform pedagogical practice within the school to support students, teachers and the wider school community.
I encourage anyone thinking about enrolling in the Master of Education program to take the leap, because I'm so glad I did!”
