For students are not trained teachers and want to learn to teach English to non-native speakers and work internationally
If you have a Bachelor' degree, in any field, and want to do a Masters degree that will qualify you to teach English in other countries, then consider joining the international students group working towards their Masters in TESOL. Meet future teachers from various countries as you become one yourself.
The Master of TESOL is designed for students from a wide range of disciplines (law, business, art, design, etc) who have not studied teaching. The course focus is on English language and on teaching and learning. There are 8 units of study in the Masters; 5 of these are essential studies in language, teaching and learning. The remaining 3 units can be selected from other specialist units for English language teaching preparation.
If you complete only 4 units, you can exit the Master of TESOL course with a Graduate Certificate of TESOL. While there’s no ‘English’ or ‘Teaching’ in the name, you will have a transcript indicating your area of expertise.

For students who already are qualified teachers and want to add specialist teaching (LOTE) qualification
You will gain in-depth knowledge by studying and researching current theories in second/foreign language education, and will apply your already established skills for improving your teaching practices and curriculum in LOTE. It is rewarding to teach not only a language other than English but also its relevant culture in schools. According to the annual report by Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) in Victoria, LOTE teachers are always in demand. In addition, the Centre for Teaching Asian Languages and Cultures at Deakin University offers extensive support for LOTE students in teaching Asian languages, including Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian, and Korean.
