Course content

  • One of the few TESOL programmes in the UK which incorporates a placement component.
  • Designed for both experienced teachers and those with little or no teaching experience.
  • Blends the theory of language and linguistics teaching with practical skills development.

This programme is for people who wish to teach English as a second, additional or foreign language. We aim to develop confident and well informed language teaching practitioners, who are capable of designing and teaching comprehensive language programmes. You’ll extend your knowledge base by engaging in independent research into your own practice and setting.

We recognise the value of professional, cultural and life experiences, which you’ll develop and explore during the programme. This will enhance your professional knowledge and understanding through reflection, aided by theoretical input and practical application.

Context specific professional development is an important element in the programme. We prepare you to return to your previous work context, or even move to a new one, with an adaptable knowledge base for your particular setting.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Students who complete the MA TESOL will have many career opportunities including: English language teaching (general or specialised), language teacher trainer, materials writing, curriculum development, language textbook editor, Director of Studies/Assistant Director of Studies, PhD studies.
