Course content

We have combined our practical, intercultural, applied approach to language teaching with our expertise in linguistics to create a TESOL Masters programme that will help you to realise your full potential as a top-quality teacher of English as a second or foreign language.

Programme overview

Studying for your Masters in TESOL is the key to unlocking international career opportunities in a sector that is enjoying impressive sustained growth.

We will help you to master the main theories and principles of language learning and teaching so that you can apply them with confidence and imagination in your own teaching practice.

A range of optional modules will allow you to specialise, while the dissertation will enable you to undertake in-depth research into a topic of particular interest to you.

This course is a great complement to a teaching qualification, opening up opportunities to become an active member of the international academic and professional English Language Teaching community.
