Course content

This Master’s programme is the only one in London with an exclusive focus on ‘teaching’ encompassing the areas of TESOL and TEFL – as opposed to Applied Linguistics and is aimed at practising teachers as a form of continuing professional development.

Please note that the course is not a teaching qualification but an academic award which not only enhances job opportunities but also enables graduates to pursue further studies at a doctoral level.

Upon completion, our graduates normally apart from following a PhD route, also become teacher trainers, consultants and advisors in the areas of English Language Teaching and Education, publishers, and school managers, among other high-stake posts.

Speaking our native language comes naturally. Acquiring a second language is a much more complex undertaking that a skilled teacher can make easier.

This fascinating course will give you a deeper understanding of the field of English language teaching in the UK and in a global context.

It addresses the language systems of English, as well as reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. You will also examine second-language acquisition theories and the impact that these have on English language teaching pedagogy.

You will explore the implications of the global spread of English, the rise of ‘new Englishes’ around the world and the political and cultural dimensions of teaching English as an international language.

Ultimately, the course will open up exciting and stimulating career opportunities, both nationally and internationally, as a teacher of English or as someone who will shape the future of English language teaching.
