Entry requirements

A bachelor degree with 2:1 (hons), preferably in a subject related to languages, language learning or education. However, we do consider applicants from a range of other backgrounds.

This programme is designed for students who do not have the two years of experience needed for our other TESOL programmes.

Beyond a first degree of an appropriate standard and appropriate English language skills, we have no specific requirements. However we do prefer applicants who can demonstrate an interest in the field of language teaching, through for example having been involved in tutoring.

We will also expect you to have basic ICT skills such as word processing, email and using the internet, and be able to use computers routinely in your academic work. You should also be able to demonstrate your ability to use ICT independently, with appropriate technical support.
