Course information

The MSc in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) - Distance Learning is run by the International Education Institute. It is designed to be useful to both experienced English language teachers as well as those considering a career in English language teaching.

Highlights

  • The programme allows for flexible part-time study while working, but also provides plenty of opportunities for you to interact with both TESOL students in St Andrews and other distance learning students.
  • Focus your studies in your particular areas of interest through your choice of optional modules and dissertation title, and gain a better theoretical and practical understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing practitioners in the field through studying a range of areas of TESOL.
  • You will have the option of completing a one-week residential course in St Andrews focusing on dissertation preparation, to give you the opportunity to be part of the St Andrews community and work on a one-to-one basis with IE staff.
  • Join experienced practitioners and scholars in the English language teaching community, with opportunities to be involved (in person or online) in ongoing professional development events and the annual English for Academic Purposes (EAP) conference.
  • Integrate theory and practice – discuss theoretical concepts and frameworks in small groups and in online forums with the students studying both in St Andrews and by distance learning around the world, and apply these through practical assessments and peer teaching sessions.

Careers

TESOL graduates are equipped with a range of skills and experiences which allow them to take on a variety of roles.
