Months of entry
An MA programme which includes Teaching Practice and Theory.
The MA in TESOL is the only Master's level TESOL programme in the United Kingdom which offers an ERASMUS funded overseas teaching practice placement. Students spend eight weeks in Hungary teaching in state primary or secondary schools and are supervised by University of Ulster staff. Part-time students spend four weeks in Hungary in year 1 and four weeks in Northern Ireland in year 2.
The programme offers an exciting opportunity to teach English as a second language. It will be of interest to those who have no teaching experience and also to those who wish to update their classroom skills. The course takes place on the Coleraine campus and aims at excellence in practical teaching as well as preparing students to proceed successfully to the Master’s degree by dissertation.
