About this program

The Trimester 3 intake will not be available to those students entering with advanced standing.

The Master of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) provides academic and pedagogical foundations for professionals who are or will be involved in work that focuses on the learning and teaching of English as a second or foreign language. The degree provides a qualification in the teaching of English in a variety of contexts with a strong focus on teaching in the Asia-Pacific region.

The program content is internationalised and intercultural, focusing on the development of a knowledge base and analytical skills that will enable graduates to operate in a range of roles involving the need to understand how second and foreign languages are learned. Much of the content of the program is also relevant to teachers of languages other than English. The course includes a research component requiring the knowledge and application of research principles and practices relating to professional work or learning in TESOL.

Please note that this program does not lead to teacher registration with the Queensland College of Teachers.
