Further Study

While many Campion graduates enter the workforce straight after graduating, others may wish to go on to further study. There is a wide field of options for further study, from pursuing the Liberal Arts at a Postgraduate level, to vocationally oriented training such as Teaching or Law.

Checklist for Students Considering Further Study

  • Consider if further study is right for you. Would a graduate program or internship be better?
  • If you are serious about further study, identify what course type you are interested in (honours, masters, diploma etc.)
  • Research the different institutions that offer the course you want.
  • Consider the course format that is best for you (e.g. in person, online, blended.)
  • Check the enrolment dates and cut off periods.
  • Find out the entry requirements.
  • Find out what documents are required for your application (e.g. partial transcript, ID, personal statement, certificates…)
  • Can you get Recognition of Prior Learning? (RPL)
  • Check your FEE-HELP loan and find out if the course you want to apply for is a Commonwealth Supported Place. If not, can you pay the fees? HELP loan amounts are capped, so check how much tuition you are able to defer.
  • Find out if enrolment in this course has implications for Centrelink support.

 

St Thomas Aquinas Teaching Schools Institute

Catholic Education Tasmania has embarked on an innovative journey in partnership with Alphacrucis College and Campion College to provide innovative high-quality teacher education in Tasmania.

With the formation of the St Thomas Aquinas Teaching Schools Institute, Tasmanian school leavers and young adults who seek a vocation in Catholic education will now be able to commence their careers as Catholic teachers—working in Tasmanian Catholic schools while they study for a teaching degree—from day one of their course.

Degrees offered as part of this program include a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and Bachelor of Education (Secondary): four years full-time, and a Master of Teaching (Primary) and Master of Teaching (Secondary): two years full-time.

The Teaching Schools Model flips the conventional model of teacher training, by bringing exceptional higher education onsite to our very own Tasmanian Catholic schools.

What will your Teaching Schools journey look like?

  • One to two days per week working as a Teacher Assistant with a Mentor Teacher
  • One day per week face-to-face leactures/intensives at the Teaching schools
  • A number of intensive lecture weeks each year delivered at the Teaching schools
  • 350 days of school-based experience by the completion of your degree
