Why study Master in TESOL?

The Master in TESOL is designed for a wide range of professionals working in English language teaching in Australian and in international contexts, who seek a graduate qualification in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

The course prepares students as language teachers in different global educational settings. It caters to those who wish to gain specialised knowledge in English language teaching and learning.

Course structure

The program comprises eight units and builds your learning through:

  • developing your knowledge and understanding of educational contexts and issues, values and practices
  • broadening your knowledge of key constructs related to language teaching and learning
  • deepening your specialised professional learning in language teaching
  • building your capacity as a professional inquirer.

Students complete the course with a capstone experience in which they research or practice in an area of their interest.

What will you learn?

This course explores teaching principles - from issues in curriculum and assessment through to broader sociocultural issues such as the role of English in learners' lives.

You will explore the theory and practice of teaching English as a second, foreign or international language in a range of contexts: primary, secondary, tertiary and the workplace.

  • Recognition of prior learning: If you hold relevant postgraduate studies and/or work experience you may be eligible to receive up to 4 units of credit into this course, which reduces the duration.
