STUDY TOURS AT MACQUARIE UNIVERSITY
THE MACQUARIE EXPERIENCE
Macquarie University is ranked among Australia’s top ten universities and within the top 40 in the Asia-Pacific region. It is recognised for its innovative curriculum, high-quality teaching, worldclass research and unique campus environment, and as such offers an outstanding learning experience.

TESOL Teacher Training
Macquarie University English Language Centre offers a new TESOL program ideal for both current English teachers and trainee English teachers with an overall IELTS test result of 5.5 - 6 (Academic Module) or equivalent. This program allows teachers to participate in TESOL Methodology Workshops and also to improve their English language skills. While the program is presented at an English language level below that for university entrance, the topics and issues covered are similar to those in certified TESOL training courses. This program can be used as preparation for further study, or as professional development for teachers who are already qualified. TESOL Methodology Workshops 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
