Specialist pathway aligned with your professional interests

The MA Education (ESOL) Pathway is designed to meet the interests of both novice and experienced teachers of:

  • English as a Second Language (ESL)

  • English as a Foreign Language (EFL)

  • those teaching international students and immigrant groups within Community, FE and HE (ESOL/ EAP/EGAP)

  • those involved in teaching non-native speakers of English within the private and state school sectors and work based contexts ( EFL/EAL/ESOL/ESP).

It provides students with a strong theoretical and practical foundation, touching on such areas as applied linguistics, language acquisition, ESL/EFL classroom methods, testing, cross-cultural considerations and English as a Global Language.

Our modules will encourage you to consider ways of understanding language learning processes, and expand your awareness of the approaches and principles, models and pedagogies, alongside policies that support or influence successful English Language Teaching (ELT) across a range of local, national and international contexts.

Enriching your career

Our MA Education is not a teaching qualification but previous students have benefited from this postgraduate degree, helping them to gain more senior roles, enriching their teaching, challenging their preconceptions and boosting their confidence.

Be inspired by others

Students frequently tell us that they most enjoy hearing the diverse mix of experiences, ideas and opinions brought by others taking the course, especially when that challenges their own thinking. Online discussion forums make this possible, and with such a wide variety of people on the course, from the UK and overseas, that's not surprising. Our tutors have many years' experience in the education sector themselves, so they understand your profession and are sympathetic to the pressures of balancing study with a busy teaching job.

You are in control

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. The course is divided into modules which are scheduled over fixed trimesters so there will be deadlines to meet; however you can organise your study time around your work and personal commitments in order to complete each module within the set time parameters.

Online class discussions are largely focused on contextualisation of theory to practice, so it's stimulating, engaging and highly relevant to your day-to-day, professional life.
