  • Description:
  • Graduate programs in Language Teaching provide specialist training in English language teaching theory and practice for prospective or current teachers. These programs provide the theoretical basis and practical language teacher training required by employers of language teachers; ELICOS centres, specialist language teaching colleges and many University language teaching centres in Australia and overseas. This program can be completed in 1 year (fulltime: 4 subjects per semester) or in 4 semesters (3 subjects per semester) `and is also available part-time.

    Professional Outcomes
    Graduates of this program could find opportunities in the areas of teaching language, as well as other related areas such as politics, economics, trade, drama and pedagogical pursuits, where language skills are of utmost importance. Successful completion of the course qualifies someone (1) who holds either a recognised, pre-service teaching qualification or (2) a recognised degree or diploma and 800 hours of teaching ESL experience, to teach in Australian ELICOS Institute or the school system. Internationally, the graduates of this course teach in many countries across five continents. For more details about requirements of teacher qualifications in Australia visit the NATIONAL ELT Accreditation Scheme website. While we provide advice concerning the current TESOL job opportunities throughout the course, we do not find jobs for course participants.

  • Additional Information:
  • Work Experience and Internships
    Some students without practical workplace experience, or with workplace experience in a field different from their studies, choose to undertake an internship as part of their degree.

    This intensely practical professional development approach fosters graduates who are ready, willing and able to hit the ground running and make an immediate impact in the workplace.

    Most students undertake four subjects per semester (equivalent to 40 credit points). You may, however, enrol in fewer subjects and extend your degree over a longer period. Bond's Teaching methodology involves a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, examinations, projects, presentations, assignments, computer labs and industry projects.
