Our teacher education programmes enable you to become a qualified teacher in Early Childhood, Primary, Primary Maori-medium, or Secondary Education.

Applications opened at the beginning of May 2014 for study in 2015 and are requested by Monday the 25th of August. Later applications will be considered, however applications received by this requested date will be given preference.
