Bachelor of Teaching

These undergraduate programmes prepare you for early childhood, primary or secondary teaching. The BTchg is a pathway into a BTchg Honours or Postgraduate Diploma in Education.

The BTchg is a three-year degree offered in either early-childhood, primary teaching.

The BTchg Conjoint programme in either primary, middle-school or secondary teaching is only offered at our Hamilton campus. This four-year (at least) programme involves completing two degrees concurrently.

In addition to studying at our Hamilton and Tauranga campuses BTchg options are available for people who want to study online via distance education (Mixed Media Presentation – MMP) and those interested in Māori Medium teaching (Ki Taiao or Kākano Rua). BTchg upgrades are available for registered early childhood, primary, middle and intermediate school teachers. All teacher education applicants need to undergo an application and selection process.
