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) and including teachers both from the UK and overseas.

This flexible programme has been developed for teacher and other TESOL professionals, such as educational administrators, inspectors, materials or curriculum developers, assessment specialists and policy markers, as well as those planning to undertake doctoral study in TESOL or applied linguistics.

The programme particularly values the professional experience that participants bring to the course, which we draw upon across our units to develop you as researchers and as reflective practitioners. It emphasises research skills both as a means to facilitating access to knowledge construction (for example as a teacher-researcher), and improving professional practice through enhanced understanding of learning and classroom processes and the capacity to lead research projects (e.g. dissertation research).  Through core and optional units you will develop your understanding of a range of perspectives on how to research, teach and analyse language within the TESOL/applied linguistics field. 

The MSc TESOL programme offers high attainment, progression to doctoral study and employability rates for alumni students.

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