Course summary

We offer supervision for our PhD English Language Teaching in a wide range of areas, including: vocabulary teaching, teaching reading and literacy development, writing pedagogy and academic writing, corpus-based pedagogy, teaching English to young learners, task-based language learning, language testing, classroom interaction, materials design and evaluation, teacher beliefs and teacher identity, and English for Academic Purposes, and computer-assisted language learning (CALL).

Examples of PhD projects which our students have undertaken include students’ attitudes to native and non-native English language teachers, the role of metacognitive awareness in EFL reading, English teachers’ beliefs about and practices of teaching methodology, and genre analysis of Japanese and British introductions to PhD theses in the field of literature.

Many of our former PhD students work in higher education institutions around the world, as teachers and/or as academic researchers, but also in teacher education, in the area of educational advice and management, programme evaluation, and syllabus design.
