Course Overview

The Graduate Diploma in TESOL meets the professional development needs of a wide range of English language teachers and educators teaching people of all ages. It caters for students seeking an initial teaching qualification in teaching English to adult speakers of other languages. It is also well suited to applicants who already possess a teaching qualification and wish to gain a specialist degree in the field as they are eligible for credit recognition.
The Graduate Diploma in TESOL consists of 6 core subjects and 2 electives, providing students with a solid foundation in the skills and knowledge to pursue a successful career in the discipline, and is a means of combining work and travel opportunities, with employment opportunities readily available in Australia and other countries. King’s Own Institute works closely with other language teaching providers in Sydney to organise practicum placements, access current industry trends, resources and expertise in teaching methodology, and to identify resources and trends in the field. The course includes a supervised practicum. The course also provides the foundation for students wanting to progress to the Master of Arts (TESOL).
