Course content

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David has a well-established record of research and teaching in English Language programmes at foundation, degree and master's level. This MA in English with TEFL draws on specialist staff with expertise in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), and has been designed specifically for students of Humanities and related disciplines who would wish to pursue a career as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language either in the UK or abroad, or to broaden their own understanding of the English Language.

This residential programme, offered on the Lampeter campus, enables students to study a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) qualification at an advanced level. It begins by developing high level research skills and then focuses upon the theory and practice of TEFL/TESOL.
