Master of Inclusive Education Initiative

2021 postgraduate education opportunities

Round 6 (R6) opens 9am Monday 1 March 2021 and closes Wednesday 24 March at midnight.

Through better qualified teachers, this initiative will promote an advanced understanding of inclusive educational needs in the context of access and success for students with disability and diverse educational needs. The long-term vision of the initiative is that every Victorian government school will have a masters-qualified inclusive education teacher on staff, creating and leading a more inclusive school environment for all students across the state, regardless of their abilities and backgrounds.

Undertaking a postgraduate study in inclusive education will help teachers better assist their schools to plan for and support students with disability and diverse educational needs using evidence-based, contemporary approaches.

Successful applicants will complete a Master level course, specialising in:

  • Inclusive Education, or
  • Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).

Support given to recipients includes:

  • full tuition fees
  • a contribution towards teacher replacement
  • four years to complete their course.

If you are successful, your place will be provisionally accepted until you have met the admission requirements of your chosen university course. We require a letter of offer as proof of successful admission to finalise your placement.
