Tertiary Pathways 2022

EDUCATION Early Childhood Education

Recommended subjects for the Bachelor of Education (Teaching) Early Childhood include a balance of Sciences, Mathematics, and essay-based subjects such as English, Geography, and History. Creative subjects such as Design, Music Studies, and Practical Arts are also useful. Primary and Secondary Teaching Subjects relevant to those the student plans to teach are important preparation for the secondary pathway. Under the primary and early childhood education pathways, students will work across a broad range of learning areas, including Mathematics and Science. For all students, strong literacy and numeracy skills are essential. Knowledge of te reo Māori is useful as all student teachers are required to use this proficiently by the time they graduate; similarly, an understanding of New Zealand history is also helpful—though both can be studied from beginner level at the University. ENGINEERING Digital Technologies, Maths, Science, Statistics, and Technology are recommended for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (BE(Hons) and the Bachelor of Science (BSc). The BE(Hons), as well as Computer Science, Computer Graphics, and Electronic and Computer Systems (within the BSc) require 16 NCEA Level 3 Mathematics. Students without the necessary Mathematics requirements will be able to take introductory courses in Trimester 1 that will help them meet prerequisites for core courses.
