Teacher Education (Mixed Media Presentation)

The Faculty’s distance education teacher education programmes are called Mixed Media Presentation (MMP). MMP programmes are delivered mainly online, but some Hamilton on-campus (block) attendance is required.

Programme delivery includes online papers and discussion groups, face-to-face block courses, workshops and briefing days and practical sessions in schools in your local area. You should expect to spend a minimum of 30 hours per week on classes, assignments and associated readings. Significant part-time employment is not recommended for full-time MMP students.


Enrolment into a initial teacher education programme requires the completion of a teacher education selection process. The Faculty of Education reserves the right to determine eligibility to apply to and/or enter distance education programmes. Applications for these programmes are only open to those people living in the North Island.
