Bachelor of Education (Teaching) Early Childhood

  • 3 years full-time
  • On-campus study in Wellington - at the Kelburn campus
  • Study year: March – November


Graduate Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood Education)

  • 1 year full-time
  • Study year: January – December

Note that there is a distance option for the Graduate Diploma. Students can complete their work on-line with the benefit of having regular communication and support from a tutor, doing practicum in their home town (with individualised visits from VUW lecturers), and exams can often be arranged close to the students home town. There is one residency at the start of the programme, where students are required to travel to Wellington to be involved in a powhiri, meet each other and meet the staff

I recently completed the Bachelor Upgrade programme online with Victoria and was thoroughly impressed with the delivery. The quality and the level of study was able to be integrated into everyday teaching and has extended my practice to a high degree. (Angela Palmer 2014-11-17)
