  • Help you to apply relevant applied linguistics research and theory to the practicalities of language teaching
  • Assist you in developing a deeper understanding of current classroom methodology, as well as of current developments in testing, in course design and in materials development
  • Increase your awareness and knowledge of the latest approaches to language analysis, and of their potential for application to language teaching.

Normally you’ll need a first degree and relevant professional experience before applying for this programme.

Our academic staff have extensive experience of teaching internationally and working on projects and have active research interests and publications.
