  • Objectives
    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.
  • Practical experience
    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.
