The TESOL and Applied Linguistics (Extension) course at University of Technology Sydney enables students to specialise in one of three streams. The first stream focuses on teaching English for academic purposes where graduates teach English to international students who are studying or seeking to study university courses in institutions where English is the medium of instruction; employers of these graduates are typically English language colleges or universities in Australia or overseas. 

The second stream is designed for teaching adults who are developing their English language, literacy and/ or numeracy skills as part of a migrant education and settlement program; a ‘second chance’ education program; a job-seeker, vocational or workplace program; or a community education program. Employers for graduates from this second stream include colleges in the vocational education and training sector, community education providers and industries. 

The third stream is for school teachers who work in Australia or overseas who teach English as an additional language and literacy to primary or secondary school students; graduates from this stream will typically be employed by schools.


Career options include teacher of English as an additional language, adult literacy and numeracy/foundation skills in Australia or overseas, curriculum developer and program manager in the TESOL/ literacy and numeracy sector (applicants are advised to check with potential employing bodies regarding employment requirements).
