Career opportunities

The graduates of the Bond University Graduate Certificate in TESOL teach in diverse educational contexts, in Australia and internationally. In Australia, depending on your prior qualifications, the degree enables you to be a teacher in English Language Teaching Centres. As the Graduate Certificate in TESOL delivers a postgraduate qualification at the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) level 8, it also fulfils the TESOL qualification (postgraduate) requirement for Academic Managers of the English Language Teaching Centres. All four subjects necessary for the completion of the Graduate Certificate in TESOL can be fully credited towards the twelve subjects required for the completion of the Master of Arts (TESOL) degree.

The degree also assists our graduates in developing their careers in international business, education, international relations, diplomacy and many other professions where excellent intercultural awareness and intercultural skills are a key to the job’s success.

Wherever you apply for a job, your eligibility of employment will depend on employer requirements, which can differ significantly. Please note that this program does not in itself fulfil the requirements for teaching in the Australian school systems, for which you will need a separate degree in education.
