Months of entry
This course is ideal for those with no or very little prior English language teaching experience (less than two years) who wish to become an English language teacher to speakers of other languages.
The course has a practical focus and is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge base required to excel as an English language teaching professional in a global environment.
What you'll study
The course has a very practical focus. You will have the opportunity to take a one-year module on practical teaching. You will be involved in demonstrating a range of teaching methods in practical sessions, designing teaching materials, planning lessons and tests.
We very much value the range of perspectives that students from different socio-cultural contexts bring to teaching and learning. The profile of course participants is very international, including most recently Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland and the UK.
We offer a high level of in-sessional support designed specifically around the needs of students, both in classes and on an individual basis. We provide one-to-one help with assignment and dissertation writing and are always happy to make appointments with students who want to talk privately about their work and progress.
