The Macquarie School of Education offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs. The undergraduate programs lead both to teaching (primary and secondary) and careers in other educational contexts. In addition, units in Education can be included as electives in a number of other undergraduate programs. A study in Education is a useful adjunct to studies in many other areas of the Humanities, Social Sciences, Psychology and Linguistics.

The TEL Labs exist for students who intend teaching in schools. It is a facility that has grown over the years in response to the needs of intending teachers as these needs are often different from those of other university students. Specifically, the TEL Labs exist to provide students with an understanding of the role of various information and communications technologies found in schools, and model their use in modern classrooms.
