Whether you prefer primary or secondary teaching, a Bachelor of Education is the right pathway to choose. Each degree offers specialisation in one of six areas – early childhood, primary teaching, secondary humanities teaching, secondary physical education and health teaching, secondary mathematics or secondary science education.

Further education and/or tests may be required to teach in other states or overseas. Patience, creativity and a high level of organisation is required, and you should be prepared to work outside of school hours to plan lessons.

Journalist

Journalist

Your main aim, if you wish to become a journalist, is to inform and educate the public through the written and spoken word. Practical experience, including getting published, is extremely important so make use of campus publications and websites. Internships or work placements are a great way to increase experience and make contacts within the industry. An internship is provided through the Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communication). You could also complete other degrees with subjects focusing on English, social sciences or politics to improve your critical thinking and analytical skills.

Entrepreneur

Entrepreneur

An entrepreneur is somebody who has a never-ending desire to question the status quo and discover ways to improve it. There are no specific requirements for this type of career, but a good grounding in commerce makes sense, as many entrepreneurs either have their own businesses or liaise with large corporations regarding their ideas and concepts. The University of Sydney’s Young Entrepreneurs Society (YES) is a forum to network and discuss entrepreneurial opportunities with like-minded people and all our students are welcome.
