Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) in KOI is a fast paced one year Master’s program that is challenging yet fulfilling for those who wish to pursue a qualification which equips them with the necessary post graduate qualification required to teach both in Australia and the world at large. The three trimesters are each designed to culminate in a post graduate qualification.
Successful completion of the first trimester leads to a Graduate Certificate in TESOL, while a post graduate Diploma in TESOL is awarded to those students who complete and pass two Trimesters. The last trimester is for students wishing to have a full-fledged Master’s qualification.
The practicum components of the course provide exposure to the real world of classroom teaching, both face to face and online. A good curriculum, well-qualified capable staff, and a personalised ambience are some features noted by our past graduates.
