MSc Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

This programme is aimed at professionals in English language education at all levels (from kindergarten to university), both from the UK and overseas.

MSc Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a flexible programme developed for teachers and other TESOL professionals, such as educational administrators, inspectors, materials and curriculum developers, assessment specialists and policy-makers, as well as those planning to undertake doctoral study in TESOL or Applied Linguistics in the future.  

We aim to ensure that the content of our programme is conceptually robust and practically relevant. We greatly value the professional experience that participants bring to the course, which we draw upon across our units to develop you as researchers and reflective practitioners. The programme also recognises the importance of developing research skills among our students, which we see both as a means to facilitating access to knowledge construction and a way of improving professional practice through enhanced understanding of the nature of learning and classroom processes.  

Through core and optional units and an independent dissertation project, you will explore a range of perspectives on how to teach, analyse and research language and you will have opportunities to learn about the ways TESOL provision is organised and delivered in a range of international contexts.  

MSc TESOL is a successful, long-established programme, and we are very proud of the high attainment, employability, and progression to doctoral study rates of our alumni. 

This programme is offered on both a full time and a part time basis.
