Entry requirements

Applicants must demonstrate that they have a first degree at 2.2 level or above.

TESOL pathway students are required to show evidence of teaching experience of two years in any context, including summer language schools, one-to-one teaching, or teaching assistant roles. Teaching practice acquired through CELTA or DELTA qualifications can count towards this. In some cases, a shorter period of teaching experience can be negotiated where there has been significant TESOL content study.

English language requirements

International students whose native language is not English are required to pass IELTS with an overall grade of 6.5, and each of the four skills should have a minimum grade of 6.0.

Course content

The TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) course is a specialised pathway of our MA Education. The course is for early career teachers seeking a grounding in the core disciplines of TESOL. And those with considerable experience hoping to consolidate or progress into specialist areas of expertise.

You can tailor the course content to your professional context. The course incorporates practical and academic tasks and assignments. And discussion with fellow TESOL practitioners worldwide on cutting edge practice and research.

You have the option to specialise in the following areas:

  • the multilingual learner
  • English Language Teaching (ELT) materials development
  • English for specific purposes.

You can study online through distance learning, on campus or through a combination of the two. As a campus-based student, you have the option of a volunteer placement scheme teaching Oxford-based asylum seekers.
