International Graduate Centre of Education
Our students graduate with a sense of professional and personal purpose having experienced work with research staff on real world assignments.
Students in the International Graduate Centre of Education (IGCE) come from around the world to study at Charles Darwin University. Bringing their understanding of diverse knowledge systems and practices from countries as widespread as Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Philippines, North America and across Australia. Our location in Northern Australia sets the scene for a research environment rich in industry and community collaboration and a respect for local knowledge.
Our programs encourage students to develop a framework for global learning that will enrich their future contributions to educational systems. This framework values diversity and promotes a spirit of critical inquiry with individuals and communities. We believe in the ability of individuals to collaborate and contribute to transformative possibilities on a local and a global scale. Our students bring knowledge and expertise in learning across organisational, workplace, and community settings in our region. In the IGCE, we utilise these shared resources to grow an internationally aware and locally responsive community of education professionals.
Students graduate from our degrees with a sense of professional and personal purpose having experienced the chance to work with research staff on real-world assignments that effect positive change through global perspectives and industry and community relevance.
