    A Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Graduate Certificate in TESOL will develop and extend your understanding of the theories and practices underpinning this field.

    There is a high demand for English teachers, as it's one of the world's most widely spoken languages. These internationally recognised courses will allow you to work in schools, language centres and universities around the world.

    In these courses you will:

    • develop specialised skills to suit varied teaching environments, including mainstream schools and language centres for adult and child migrants
    • understand critical issues in TESOL research, methodology and assessment
    • examine grammar and second language acquisition
    • explore English teaching in an international context
    • study language planning in education
    • develop your understanding of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).

    The Master of TESOL and Graduate Certificate in TESOL are offered in two different streams.

    Stream A: is for Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) registered teachers wishing for further recognition as a TESOL specialist. Qualified teachers who complete this course can work in a wide range of settings, including schools, adult migrant English programs and English language intensive courses for international students.

    Stream B: is for students who do not require VIT recognition for TESOL, such as those intending to teach English overseas, or qualified TESOL teachers who want to extend their professional knowledge and skills.

    Australia requirements for international students

    In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test. 

    You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
