University of the Sunshine Coast – Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education

University of the Sunshine Coast

Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education

The Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education is open to anyone with a Bachelor’s degree in any subject. (The Grad Cert, however, does not lead to Australian teacher registration).

Join us in a dynamic, flexible study environment. We offer both fully online AND face-to-face study options – whichever suits you best. Enrol by mid-February for a semester 1 start every year and by mid-July for a semester 2 start every year.

We welcome teachers in Steiner, mainstream and private schools as well as parents, assistants, administrators, principals, and home-educators – anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Steiner/Waldorf Education in a contemporary context.

If you’re currently teaching, all hours can be counted towards Professional Development. (External, self-selected – 52 hours per semester if you’re doing 2 courses).

We warmly welcome you to be part of our program.

FEE-Help is available, so there are no upfront costs. Additionally, Commonwealth Supported Places are available at a further reduced cost. Find us here:

Testimonials from students:  

‘I got so much out of these classes and they are, without doubt, the most rigorous and stimulating I have attended in many years of study. ‘

‘I loved this course…great experience, great teaching and so good to be around like-minded people – very inspirational indeed. The online lectures and blackboard discussions were great too. The assessments were relevant and real life and I know this research is useful in my current career too. Even the readings were great; really enjoyed this whole course.’ 

‘I loved every minute of my engagement with this course. The content and its delivery were superb, and made for an extremely rich and valuable learning experience.’
