    which uni is best for primary education/special education??

    Okay so I'm about to go into year 11 this year (2018) and I've been looking around at the different universities in Sydney for the career that I'm interested in. I am currently looking at either:

    1. An undergraduate degree in Primary Education and then a postgraduate degree in Special Education,

    - OR -

    2. An undergraduate degree in Special Education.

    I'm looking at either:
    - UTS
    - Macquarie
    - ACU
    - Sydney Uni
    - UNSW

    Originally I wasn't looking at ACU but I did some searching and I found out that it's the top ranked university in Australia for Education (not sure how reliable my sources are though so please let me know if that's wrong). Also heard that Sydney Uni has a pretty good reputation for their Education courses. Wasn't so sure about Macquarie but then my school went for a tour there and I was actually surprised that I liked it (wasn't originally considering it). My sister goes to UNSW and says that she likes it, but I'm not sure whether the Education sector is good or not, I haven't been to any open days for it. UTS visited our school for a talk and from what they showed us I think it looks like a really good uni, I also love how modern it is compared to Sydney Uni. Though Sydney Uni has really amazing architecture and history (pretty sure UNSW does too, only been to Sydney uni for a school tour), I personally feel like it would be a boring learning environment for me.

    If there are any other universities you guys can think of that would be good for Primary Education + Special Education or just Special Education, please tell me! Otherwise, if you go to any of the universities I put down, let me know what you like/don't like about it. Thanks! :)

    doesn't necessarily matter what uni for primary ed, don't have to go to the 'top' ones. Just choose one you feel you'd enjoy and get the most out of for yourself personally.
