The Master of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is designed for people wishing to teach* English as an Additional Language (EAL). It focuses on the curriculum, pedagogy, and language as they apply to classroom instruction and the provision of TESOL education within a variety of educational settings relevant to both local and international contexts.
The two-year program is designed for people with little or no prior education qualifications or experience and includes studies in educational theories, policies, and approaches. Students in the two-year program will gain practical TESOL skills and knowledge to apply to a variety of educational settings*.
The one-year fast-track program is for people with an education background, and provides options to focus on school or other educational settings. Qualified teachers may choose to complete the ‘EAL Teaching specialisation’ to add EAL as a specialist area for teaching in schools. Note that eligibility for teacher registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT) is required to take this specialisation. Applicants who do not hold current teacher registration with the VIT are encouraged to contact the VIT to determine eligibility.
*Please note that this course is not an initial teacher education qualification and does not provide eligibility for registration to teach in Australian schools. For information on becoming a teacher, please visit the Become a Teacher page
