Course summary

The popular MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is designed for practising teachers of English to speakers of other languages. We explore different approaches to the teaching and learning of English and study the close relationship between language teaching theory and practice.

The programme encourages you to use the concepts and theories that you encounter during your course of study in your own classroom.

It is a set of interactive course materials to complete in part-time, self-study mode over a period of at least 30 months. Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.

The University's Careers Network provides advice and information specifically for postgraduates that will help you to develop an effective career and skills development strategy, and to make the most of your time with us at the University. The College of Arts and Law also has a dedicated careers and employability team to deliver local support.

In addition to a range of campus-based events and workshops, Careers Network provides extensive online resources, and comprehensive listings of hundreds of graduate jobs and work experience opportunities. You will also be able to access our full range of careers support for up to two years after graduation. Birmingham's English Language and Linguistics postgraduates develop a broad range of transferable skills that are highly valued by employers, particularly in relation to verbal and written communication. They also develop crucial skills in organisation, time management, analysis and interpretation of information.
