Course summary

The careful design of this academic Master’s course will meet your needs as a current/future English language teacher. You’ll acquire in-depth expertise in your field and graduate ready to contribute to the teaching of English worldwide, for example, as a teacher, policy-maker, or academic researcher.

Over the course, you’ll develop your advanced teaching and learning skills and cultivate a breadth of knowledge about teaching English to speakers of other languages. You’ll also benefit from the depth of study that comes with this unique Master’s level programme.

You’ll study with top academics, who are active researchers and educators in the fields of TESOL, applied linguistics and education. These highly experienced professionals have worked in a range of different countries and will share their pedagogical/research expertise with you.

During your MA TESOL, you’ll develop critical awareness of both current practice and research in English language teaching in the UK and internationally. You’ll also become an expert in matters of professional responsibility, integrity and ethics – essential for your later career. At the same time, you’ll build your academic and linguistic skills, including transferable skills such as independent study, critical thinking, and effective spoken and written communication in English.

One key feature of your time as an MA TESOL student at UEA is having the ability to customize the curriculum to your needs. For example, you’ll have the option to complete a dissertation, focusing on a research topic of your own choosing, or to add to your breadth of knowledge by taking additional taught modules.

Upon completion of the MA TESOL, you may also decide to pursue an additional qualification – the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) – with a local partner of ours.


Learn to teach English to speakers of other languages and help people all over the world open doors, unlock their potential and communicate across borders.

According to the British Council, 1.5 to 1.6 billion people speak English around the world today, with the number likely to grow and stabilise around 2025. With more and more people learning English, the demand for high quality English language teaching is only set to grow.

With an MA TESOL qualification from one of the UK’s leading universities you will be able to meet that demand. You will be able to benefit your future students, and you will kick start a career that could see you work anywhere in the world, and in any number of different sectors.
