Course content

MA TESOL is designed to help experienced teachers of English to speakers of other languages further their expertise and/or begin following a specialised pathway in one of the following (which can be applied to as separate courses, rather than as MA TESOL alone):

  • Educational Technology;
  • Intercultural Education;
  • Materials and Course Design;
  • Teacher Education.

The course enables experienced TESOL practitioners to further their careers through obtaining positions of seniority, undertaking new areas of professional activity or contributing to the professional development of other teachers.

Applications from both native and non-native-English-speaking teachers are welcome.
