The School of Humanities and Social Science welcomes students from around the world to experience our wide range of courses, which extend from the openness of our Arts courses to the professional specificity of our Social Work and Speech Pathology programs. As a School we are proud of our focus on teaching and the student experience, and our courses and staff count consistently amongst the most appreciated at the university. While our undergraduate courses regularly attract exchange and study-abroad students, our Coursework Masters programs (including the Masters of Applied Linguistics and the Masters of Social Change and Development) and Research Higher Degree programs are also particularly popular for international students.
School Postgraduate Coursework Programs
Many international students come to study in our highly regarded professional coursework masters programs, particularly the Master of Applied Linguistics and the Master of Social Change and Development.
ESLA1901: Academic Language Skills for International Students
Designed for international students who are native speakers of languages other than English, this course focuses on the development of students' academic English skills in writing, speaking, listening and reading. During both lectures and tutorials, students are encouraged to participate actively to practise their spoken-language skills.
DAELT (Diagnostic Academic English Language Test)
International students are encouraged to use the DAELT (Diagnostic Academic English Language Test). DAELT is an excellent resource that helps you identify relevant training courses you can undertake to improve your academic English. Enrolled students are eligible to undertake it and can access it from Learning Development site within Blackboard
In addition to the assistance provided by the University International Student Support Services, the School provides additional support on a needs-basis.
