Postgrad Admission

Postgrad Admission

Admission to the Graduate Certificate in Religious Education (Primary) is based on:

Academic transcript

  • An undergraduate degree (minimum AQF Level 7) from a recognised institution (students already qualified to teach religion in Catholic schools must also have an undergraduate degree in education or teaching from an accredited institution); or
  • the ability to demonstrate sufficient professional or life experience in areas related to the specialisation of the qualification.
Performance at an academic interview
Once you have submitted your application form and academic transcript, you will be contacted to schedule a 15-minute interview with a member of the academic staff. The interview provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate a clear understanding of the course expectations, commitment to study, the ability to express yourself effectively and the ability to work independently and as part of a team. Interviews are conducted in person, over the phone or via video call.

Your application will be assessed by the Dean of Studies. The admission process can take up to 10 working days, provided that you have submitted all required documentation. You will be notified of the outcome of your application via email.
