有人知道澳洲USQ與QUT的Master of Tesol嗎

1.兩校TESOL碩士都有條件式入學嗎?就是修過該校的GE與PATHWAY或EAP(65以上)就可以直接上碩士班(COURSEWORK)的課嗎?本身是國中英文老師,想出國讀書,但不想補習IELTS.

2.USQ是不是比較便宜(一年所有費用大概多少?包括學費),但是聽說很偏僻,氣候如何?Toowoomba生活機能(例如:大賣場、等)與Brisbane會差很多嗎?離海很遠嗎?

3.兩校碩士課程是不是都只有8門課,一年就可以修完,拿到碩士學位?QUT的Master of Tesol真的不好過嗎?還是修通過EAP的課程就沒什麼大問題?

    大大你好!讓我來慢慢的回答你的問題!

    1. 入學條件:

    USQ:

    To be eligible for admission to the Master of TESOL (coursework only) applicants must meet the following criteria:

    A.hold either

    1.a Bachelor degree and a postgraduate qualification in teaching

    2.a Bachelor of Education or Bachelor of Educational Studies degree, or equivalent four-year qualification, or

    3.an equivalent qualification approved by the Dean on the recommendation of the Coordinator of Program

    and

    B.have demonstrated a high level of academic achievement in their previous studies

    C.have a level of relevant experience in professional education acceptable to the Dean

    Dhave a level of proficiency in a LOTE or experience in teaching ESL/EFL acceptable to the Dean.

    International applicants must have met the University's English language requirements or have completed the University's ELICOS/UNIPREP program.

    QUT:

    Applicants must possess an appropriate bachelor degree or equivalent at a standard acceptable to the Executive Dean and at least one year's practical experience in some branch of education acceptable to the Executive Dean.

    Applicants who are non-native speakers of English must meet the University's English language proficiency entry requirements.

    所以兩間的入學條件都是大同小異的,你需有相關的大學畢業文憑,而且有相關工作經驗更好喔,有加分效果! 不過你需面對現實的是,不管你的英文多好,都會要求你先在語言學校(ELICOS)先小待一段時間(短短幾個月),因為你的學業並不是在英文語系國家的大學讀的,所以他們一定會要求你先在語言學校適應一下環境!之後如果你的IELTS成績真的很好的話,這樣你就有機會直跳Course work的正式課程了!所以我的建議是直接選他們學校得附設語言學校,當然比較貴一點,但是有時你的IELTS成績差一點點,也是可以進去的,畢竟你會用國際學生的名義進去,你會是金主的!

    不過呢,以我的經驗,pathway或EAP等等...中的課程做好上一個,你在ELICOS的時候,就有一堆人可以詢問要上哪一個課程比較適合,這最主要是讓你適應,才不會一到正式課程的時候,一下子要reading 的東西很多,報告要怎麼寫等等造成手足無措,我覺得這很重要,不過這當然關係到你的經費問題囉,畢竟多出來的時間都是要花錢的。

    2. USQ的學費跟生活費會比較便宜,你的課程在USQ一年的學費要AUD12,080! QUT就要你AUD17,088. 至於TOOWOOMBA非常得漂亮,是一個花鎮,每年有一次花季,不過它真的是一個樸素的小鎮。布理斯班在海的邊緣,而TOOWOOMBA再往內入西行大約2Hr的車程,所以幾乎下午6pm就沒街可逛囉,不過大賣場還是有的,不用怕。

    2008-06-20 15:18:18 補充:

    在布里斯本租房間,一個禮拜大約AUD100左右,Homestay現在大約一禮拜大約AUD200以上囉,真正行情我不清楚了,不過我想TOOWOOMBA應該會便宜一點是跑不掉的。而你讀的課程,QUT是在Kevin Gorve校區,他並不是在市中心的那一個,離市中心大約十分鐘的車程,跟語言學校是在同一個校區的!旁邊有一個高爾夫球場,便宜又大碗,是我常去的地方。^^

    3.我把兩校的Program Structure都給你看比較清楚

    2008-06-20 15:19:57 補充:

    USQ

    To be awarded a Masters degree in the Faculty of Education, a student must have completed eight education-related units at postgraduate level, of which at least four must be at level 8. Courses awarded as 'unspecified electives' through exemptions are classified as level 5 only.

    2008-06-20 15:20:41 補充:

    USQ course codes consist of 3 alpha characters indicating the area of study and four numerals of which the first represents the level of difficulty of the course. Level 5 indicates first level postgraduate courses.

    2008-06-20 15:21:01 補充:

    Level 8 courses can be expected to require more extensive work with theory and conceptualisation and to place more demands on the level of response in student work.

    2008-06-20 15:21:31 補充:

    Students using this program to prepare for doctoral studies are advised to undertake the research/evaluation pathway with project work as described in the table below.

    2008-06-20 15:23:15 補充:

    There are three compulsory courses, namely LIN5000, LIN8001 and LIN5002 as these form the basic elements essential for any potential second language teacher.

    2008-06-20 15:23:59 補充:

    Practical Experience:There is an optional practicum consisting of 20 hours teaching and/or observing lessons at an institution. Of the 20 hours, six hours are observed and evaluated by a supervising teacher.

    2008-06-20 15:24:14 補充:

    This option provides an opportunity for those students who need this practical experience for employment purposes to undertake formally such an experience.

    QUT:Students in the Masters program are required to complete 96 credit points of study including the two compulsory units, Second Language Acquisition and Principles of Second Language Methodology, of 12 credit points each. Students then have the choice of pursuing one of two options:

    2008-06-20 15:25:55 補充:

    - Option 1: requires the completion of six elective units of 12 credit points each.

    2008-06-20 15:26:08 補充:

    - Option 2: requires the completion of elective units and a 12, 24 or 36 credit point Facilitated Study Unit to total 96 credit points. Students must consult with the Course Coordinator to discuss their research topic before enrolling in a Facilitated Study Unit.

    所以只是兩校的學分算法不同,其實都是要讀8門課,一學期4門課。如果你是FULL-TIME學生,那就是要修2學期,一年可以搞定,有些科目是開在暑假期間,所以你也可以在暑假修一、兩科,這樣學期會比較輕鬆喔!

    2008-06-20 15:28:36 補充:

    澳洲的大學都很好入學,USQ是真的比較好畢業,相較之下QUT的教授要求的比較多,這也是近幾年QUT在澳洲有很好的口碑就是這原因,要進QUT就要比較認真喔,台灣教育部也承認,如果你的銀彈夠的話,我還是會建議你選QUT!

    2008-06-20 15:28:45 補充:

    EAP通過後,只是你可於去讀Master的課程,但不代表你一定可以Pass喔! EAP只是一個預備課程,讓你先知道你再讀正式課程時有哪些東西要面對的,比較有心理準備而以。可是CourseWork讀的東西又是另一回事,還是一樣要加油的!

    預祝你留學深造成功!!!

    兩校的條件都差不多

    可是我不是很清楚細節

    我只能告訴你

    Toowoomba離Brisbane要開車兩個小時

    基本上他算一個小城鎮

    該有的都有

    可是因為華人不多

    所以很難買到亞洲商品

    他是內陸地區

    所以離還很遠

    Brisbane要開45分才能到海邊

    Toowoomba要再加兩個小時

    大賣場通常直有大城市有

    在澳洲沒有開車會很麻煩

    除非公共交通好的地方

    Brisbane的公共交通很好

    Toowoomba就很落後

    我本身是住在Brisbane也唸QUT

    我兩年前常常去Toowoomba找人

    所以對兩地的環境還算了解

    QUT是比USQ好很多

    不是因為我是QUT的學生才這樣講的

    老實說如果你進的去QUT

    還是去QUT好

    因為USQ在我們這裡

    都是進不去好學校才去唸的

    講直一點就是去混文憑的
