Course summary

Overview

Whether your goal is to work as a TESOL professional at home or abroad or to build on your existing experience, this programme will equip you with relevant and practical teaching competencies, improve your global citizenship skills and instil you with an increased awareness of issues related to English language, learning and teaching.

Course Highlights

This programme is aimed at those who work, or intend to work, as TESOL professionals teaching English in their own country or elsewhere.

This programme will equip you with an increased awareness of issues related to English language, learning and teaching.

This programme is available on a part-time basis for home students with some attendance at Paisley Campus – making it an ideal route if you plan to gain practical experience working while you study.

This programme also gives you the option of taking a language module, which is studied as an extra module and doesn’t count towards your degree.

Careers

For those with no previous experience in TESOL, this qualification increases employment opportunities in a wide range of TESOL contexts all over the world. Many of our TESOL graduates can find work as English language teachers, and put the knowledge and skills gained on the MEd to good practical use in this way.

For those who already have practical teaching experience, the theories and concepts presented on this course provide a deeper understanding of some key issues shaping the TESOL profession, allowing them to progress their careers in areas such as TESOL management, teacher education, and further academic study e.g., at doctoral level. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
