What is the best university to study primary education?

Helloooo. I recently completed my HSC, and am looking to pursue studying primary education in university next year.

While I'm very interested in doing a Bachelor of (Primary) Education Bachelor of Arts in International Studies at UTS (due to my love of travelling), I'd like to get other people's opinions on the best university to study primary education.

I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone can help :D

Hello!

I know quite a few of graduated students from my school have pursued primary teaching at the University of Notre Dame. I’m not too familiar with the degree itself but I think you can easily get placements at (Catholic) primary schools around NSW due to their connections with schools in the Catholic Education office. Though not quite sure with non-religious schools.

Best to research other primary education degrees online and see the pros and cons of each university. I thought I would share my opinion about Notre Dame, which could be a possible option for you :)

Hi! Just adding my two cents as someone who applied for primary teaching last year!

I put down USYD and ACU as I felt those two would be the best. USYD has that “11th in the world for teaching” thing going for them and ACU has an amazing reputation for teaching — most of my high school teachers went there or Notre Dame. With ACU and Notre Dame, there’s the advantage of connections with the Catholic Education Office but it really depends on you. All unis I’ve mentioned have really great teaching programs and if you’d like to travel during your degree there’s always the option for exchange without studying International Studies. :-)
