Details

The Master of Arts (TESOL) provides graduates with a professional qualification for teaching English to speakers of other languages.

TESOL at Western Sydney University is offered at the new Parramatta City campus, situated at 169 Macquarie Street, Parramatta. Western Sydney University TESOL values bi- and multilingualism, with our staff having extensive experience and expertise in the fields of TESOL, linguistics and languages. The School of Humanities and Communication Arts works closely with The College and other language teaching providers in Sydney to organise internship placements, to access current industry trends, resources and expertise in teaching methodology, and to identify resources and trends in the field.

Our internship program leads the field in connecting students with language teaching providers in Sydney. A TESOL qualification is a means of combining work and travel opportunities, with employment opportunities readily available in Australia and other countries.

The Master of Arts (TESOL) equips you with an internationally valued skill set, enabling you to communicate and exchange ideas with people of diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and to learn more about other cultures and languages.
