Course summary

Course overview:

The MA in Education (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) – MA in Education (TESOL) – is designed for experienced TESOL professionals who already have a Level-6 qualification and at least one-year, full-time experience of teaching English as a foreign or second language in any context.

Applicants with a Cambridge University Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) and sufficient English teaching experience will also be considered.

This route is an opportunity for you to explore an aspect of TESOL relevant to your interests and career development aspirations. You reflect upon your own practice, identify areas of professional relevance and explore possible approaches to TESOL.You are encouraged to share your experiences and perspectives on aspects of educational practice. Learning is shared with students on other MA in Education routes, who come from a variety of educational settings and backgrounds. This gives you the opportunity to develop a systematic and critical understanding not only of TESOL, but also of the breadth and depth of knowledge in educational research and practice. Therefore, students can discuss and explore themes that are particularly relevant to TESOL, and develop a sense of belonging to the whole MA in Education cohort.Peer-led discussions on the range of research and practice areas covered in sessions provide the opportunity for inter-professional discussion and debate, and to consider relevant issues from the perspectives of other professional educational groups which in turn supports you to integrate and synthesise a diverse range of knowledge.You are encouraged to consider potential progression beyond completion of the MA in Education (TESOL), for example to doctoral studies.

How you are assessed:

Staff teaching on the course have a wide range of educational backgrounds and specialist interests to support cross-disciplinary interests and multi-agency working. Another important element is how your transition to studying at level 7 is supported. You are offered academic support to help you understand the requirements of master’s level study, to develop your skills in academic writing and referencing, as well as critical thinking and critical writing, and in the key information technology skills, including in literature searching. The assessment has been designed to prompt you to reflect on your own practice and specific professional context. Student feedback on the course has consistently highlighted the level of support from the staff as a major contributor to their success.

Career opportunities:

Career opportunities are numerous, from progressing in your current role to moving to a more senior role within the TESOL field.
