Course summary

Overview

MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a well-respected qualification which will enable you to access reputable and high-paying teaching roles in many international contexts.

You will develop an in-depth theoretical knowledge of the English language, and develop your identity as a language educator, as well as practical and effective teaching skills.

This flexible, distance-learning course is perfect if you want to develop your career, but you can’t attend the University of Sunderland in person.

Course structure

You can learn from anywhere in the world that has internet access. You’ll interact with other students in online discussion forums, and your tutors will guide and support you via email, phone, and the University’s virtual learning environment.

Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this Master's degree requires a higher level of independent working. However, you will have a high level of support from staff throughout your degree.

Career ready

A TESOL qualification is an essential qualification for many overseas teaching jobs. Career options can include senior roles in educational institutions, educational advisers, and educational inspectors.

You will find that possessing a Master's postgraduate degree will also support a career in other fields, as employers recognise the higher levels of research, analysis and communication that a postgraduate degree requires.
