Positives: We get to go on placement at a primary school which helps us build our confidence in becoming a teacher

Negatives: Kids can sometimes not listen while on placement. And play up if you're by yourself

My advice to future students is: You need to have patients. You get overwhelmed quicky. It's not the course for you

Positive: Very engaging and passionate teachers. It was well structured and the way they structured the course and the assessments was beneficial when it came to undertaking my VIT portfolio. The university is well established and so is the course. They are constantly updating it as well.

Negative: You can't do this particular course anymore to be a teacher. You now need to go through the Bachelor of Teaching or the Master of Teaching or Master of Education. This will be an extra year of study. Some people do the Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching at one time graduating with a double degree. Otherwise, this course is the same, it's just the first year of Masters, or over 2 years of the Bachelor pathway. I would highly recommend THIS course at this university. I am currently enrolled in the Masters to finish this course. I'm also already a teacher. Another downside is not with the course itself but if you want to be a teacher you now have to go and get certified in the top 30% of Victoria in English Literacy and Numeracy. That isn't the fault of Melbourne University however.

My advice to future students is: Get your provisional VIT registration as soon as you have done your placements and test. Don't face ""assessment class"" with a frown. Embrace it!! Take time for yourself. It is intense!

Positive - It's a good location. There's also a good amount of contact hours.

Negative - It seems there a few organisational issues. Sometimes even the coordinators do not know what is going on. Due to our group being the first year of a restructure it feels like they're making it up as they go along sometimes.

My advice to future students is: make sure it's what you really want to do. As with any course, I suppose.
