This is a leading course from one of world’s best known centres in TESOL and Applied Linguistics.
It is suitable for graduates already working or just starting a career in the field of English as a second/foreign language and who wish to develop and deepen specialist knowledge and skills in TESOL and related linguistic areas.
We offer two tracks: a dissertation track and a pre-service track for those with little or no teaching experience. The pre-service track involves a completion of a portfolio based on own classroom observations and teaching experience gained during the summer term in our renowned International Study and Language Institute (ISLI).
The programme connects theory with practice to build relevant teaching expertise in key TESOL areas, and provides up-to-date, thorough and critical knowledge of the field taught by top researchers and teachers.
This course offers flexibility through a choice of tracks to suit individual needs and experiences using small-group teaching and a wide choice of optional modules are available.
Our specialist research areas include testing and assessment; second language acquisition, intercultural communication, second language teaching, multilingualism, vocabulary studies, language teaching and creativity, language curriculum design, EFL teacher training, child language development, language and migration, world Englishes, sociolinguistics and teaching young learners.
