Harrison Rowntree, Bachelor of Teaching with Bachelor of Science

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the University of Adelaide. The professors who are passionate about their subject made learning an enjoyable experience.”

Tania Zebian, Bachelor of Teaching with Bachelor of Arts

“Undertaking my teaching degree has been an intensive, yet invaluable learning experience. Not only have I been equipped with a solid foundation of knowledge and practical skills as an innovate English and Psychology teacher, but I have developed positive interpersonal and intrapersonal qualities which will support my personal and professional life aspirations.”

Tania Zebian

Why did you choose your degree?

My decision of undertaking the B.Teaching/B.Arts degree was solely based on my passion in the subject areas of English and Psychology. Stemming back from Year 12 and flourishing in these subject areas, I always intended to become a teacher, as I would always find myself in situations whereby I would teach others by simplifying concepts which facilitated reciprocal learning. Therefore, I chose an education degree which would enable me to gain more theoretical knowledge and practical experience in my areas of specialisation in order to become an effective teacher, who thrives on student-teacher interaction, fosters wellbeing, implements diverse teaching strategies, and caters for different types of learners. Not only do I wish to pursue further study to gain insight into improving educational practices, but I also hope to make a difference in the field of education from beyond the walls of the classroom.
