Course content

This is a professionally-oriented higher degree for those who intend to follow a career in English Language Teaching (ELT) and teachers who wish to extend and develop their knowledge of teaching English language learners. The MSc TESOL team is internationally recognised for its range of teaching and research in language education and Applied Linguistics.

The programme enables participants to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to devise and teach effective English language courses, in addition to equipping students with the essential research and analytical skills to keep up with the rapid developments in the field of TESOL and Applied Linguistics.

Through the range of modules you can also focus on certain aspects of TESOL and language learning, including, materials development, bilingual education, the impact of digital literacies, and language assessment. One of the key features of the MSc TESOL is that the programme is linked directly to the new Centre for Language Education which means that students can benefit from a rich research culture to augment their course activities.
