Course summary

Course overview

The development of globalisation has brought with it a greater need to be able to speak proficient English. This has resulted in more career prospects for English language teachers and exciting opportunities to work across the globe.

The course is ideal for those who are currently involved in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and wish to build upon their existing knowledge and experience.

It has been designed to develop and encourage your critical understanding of the latest developments in TESOL theory and practice. It will enable you to reflect on your own teaching practice/context and help improve your career prospects, whilst preparing you to conduct independent research into teaching and learning.

Our tutors are experts in their academic context and actively research leading concepts. Their vast knowledge influences the topics covered on the course and optional modules allow you to explore specific aspects of language education that interest you.

You may have the opportunity to take part in a community-based project to provide language teaching to refugees who need general and functional English language to survive and adapt to life in the UK, adding invaluable experience to your professional portfolio.

If you wish to take a more blended approach to studying, you can choose to study this course on one of our ‘global routes’. These routes provide you with the flexibility to combine studying face-to-face, online and across our international campuses.

The course is also available as an online course.
