About Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Studies at School of Education, University of Leeds

MA TESOL Studies provides candidates who have little or no previous experience of teaching with the opportunity to study for a Masters degree in English language teaching, offering an excellent step towards a career in TESOL.

You will explore the essential elements in language teaching, studying the processes of learning and teaching language, in addition to the study of language itself. You will also develop the knowledge and skills required to evaluate TESOL theoretical frameworks, materials and procedures in addition to those required for the practical management of the classroom.

Entry requirements

A bachelor degree (hons) with a 2:1 or non-UK equivalent in a subject that shows a strong grounding in English Language and/or Education, Linguistics or Foreign Languages. High grades in these subjects are essential.

This programme is designed for students who do not have the two years of experience needed for our other TESOL programmes.

Beyond a first degree of an appropriate standard and appropriate English language skills, we have no specific requirements. However we do prefer applicants who can demonstrate an interest in the field of language teaching, for example having been involved in tutoring.

IELTS 7.0 overall, with no less than 6.0 in any component. For other English qualifications, read English language equivalent qualifications.

What students think about School of Education, University of Leeds

    Zara Karim - BA Childhood Studies

    Testimonial from Zara Karim - BA Childhood Studies, student at School of Education

    A particular highlight of my course was gaining knowledge on how primary schools work and about inclusion in education. This is something I often think about for when I become a teacher. Another highlight of my course has been the development of my personal profile and how I can build on this to get to where I would like to be. 

    I’m currently studying in my second year and have planned to work in industry in the summer in Thailand. I believe this opportunity will enhance my credibility for becoming a primary school teacher.

    Xiaowen Liu - MA TESOL Studies

    Testimonial from Xiaowen Liu - MA TESOL Studies, student at School of Education

    What has impressed me most is that the course combined theory with practice. For example, in the module English Teaching Methodology, in addition to introducing teaching practices in the classroom, tutors also scaffold micro-teaching, which provides students opportunities to design and deliver a real course with their partners and get feedback from tutors.

    Academic writing concerned me most before I came here, like many international students, but the School of Education prepared me well. In the first few weeks of term, we were provided with a chance to write a practice assignment to get familiar with academic writing in this country, which would not count towards our final grade but would be marked and commented on by academic staff.
