University of the Sunshine Coast

Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education

Advance your teaching career and become a specialist in Steiner philosophy with this flexible graduate certificate. The only qualification of its kind in Australia, USC’s program offers the opportunity to connect theory and practice, and work with experts and likeminded educators to develop your pedagogy. Graduates are in demand in Steiner schools all over the world due to an international shortage of qualified Steiner teachers.

The program includes weekly online lectures that can be viewed at your own convenience, engaging weekly classes delivered online in real time, and a compulsory two-day weekend intensive for each course (four intensives in total).

Looking for an advanced qualification? Upon successful completion of the four Steiner Education courses, you can choose to progress to a Master of Education.

This program is fully recognised by Steiner Education Australia.

Note: The Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education is a postgraduate education program open to applicants with a Bachelors degree in any subject. This program, however, does not qualify graduates for teacher registration. Offshore International students enrolling in this program can only study it fully online. This program is not available to International students already studying in Australia on a student visa.

In this program you will:

  • Complete four specialist courses in Steiner Education
  • Learn from fully trained and qualified Steiner teachers and study with a cohort of like-minded peers
  • Develop the skills and knowledge you need to advance your teaching career in Steiner/Waldorf schools, both in Australia and overseas
