与澳大利亚纽卡斯尔大学合作的相关信息

1. Information

Newcastle’s Master of Applied Linguistics (MAL) is a one-year program comprising 80 units of credit (equivalent to 8 standard courses). The Program conditions include a provision allowing students to seek up to 40 units of advanced credit for appropriate previous studies. Based on this, your students will be granted 40 units of credit for four pre-agreed postgraduate courses that they would be doing as part of their home university degree. This will effectively enable them to do half of the MAL load (= 40 units) at their home institution. The other half will be done at Newcastle. Importantly, your students will only be charged tuition for the four Newcastle courses: this will effectively enable them to get the MAL degree at half of its nominal cost.

The current suite of MAL offerings includes the following courses:

LING6010 Introduction to Syntax
LING6020 Structure of English
LING6030 Second Language Acquisition
LING6040 Language Testing & Evaluation
LING6060 Issues of bilingualism and bilingual education
LING6070 Cross-Cultural Communication
LING6080 Academic Writing
LING6910 Foundations of Linguistics
LING6930 Language and Meaning
LING6950 Research Preparation
LING6960 Research Project
EDUC6024 Practicum in TESOL
EDUC6025 TESOL Curriculum and Methodology

Students doing the generic strand of MAL can freely select from among these courses. Students who wish to do the TESL/TEFL specialisation are required to do the four specialised “core” courses for this strand:

LING6030 Second Language Acquisition
LING6040 Language Testing & Evaluation
EDUC6024 Practicum in TESOL
EDUC6025 TESOL Curriculum and Methodology

Students with well-defined research interests in the field of Applied Linguistics would also be given a chance to do one or both of the two research courses offered in the Master's Program:

LING6950 Research Preparation
LING6960 Research Project

This option would be particularly relevant to those contemplating doing a PhD by research. Holders of the Master of Applied Linguistics award who have successfully completed these two courses (with at least a Distinction) would be eligible for a PhD Program in linguistics or applied linguistics at our University (and elsewhere in Australia).

For more information about the MAL program (or individual courses) please visit the Program’s web page: http://www.newcastle.edu.au/program/11256.html.

Under the proposed agreement, your students will be doing the Newcastle Program Master of Applied Linguistics (MAL). In order to do so they will have to enrol in the MAL Program as regular Newcastle students, subject to the standard admission requirements. The two most essential such requirements are the candidate’s prior academic qualification (a BA or equivalent) and the English language requirement. Currently applicants for Australian universities are typically required to have a recent IELTS score of al least 6.5 (with no individual band less than 6.0) or a TOEFL score of at least 550.

Upon completion of the program, students will be granted Newcastle University’s postgraduate degree “Master of Applied Linguistics”.
