Months of entry
This course is appropriate for students at the start of their careers as English Language teachers and also for more experienced teachers. A dedicated pathway is offered for students with more experience.
Whichever pathway you follow, you will take a critical professional perspective towards TESOL and Applied Linguistics in a global, cultural, political and educational context.
Language is embedded in the social, cultural, personal, and interpersonal processes of human life, with complex forms and patterns that constantly develop to help us communicate more effectively. Thus, you will be encouraged to think of language as more than a set of rules. Instead, you will recognise language use as a complex process with personal, social and educational consequences, and you will acquire the knowledge and skills required to reflect critically upon your own language teaching practice.
Information for international students
International applicants are required to have a minimum overall IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 with 5.5 in each component (or approved equivalent).
