Course summary

The TESOL MSc with a Specialism in English Medium Instruction gives students with an interest in this field the opportunity to integrate the theory and practice of teaching English to speakers of other languages, with a particular focus on English medium instruction.

Course information

The MSc in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with a Specialism in English Medium Instruction is designed to be useful to both experienced English language teachers as well as those considering a career in English language teaching. It is aimed at teachers with a particular interest in English medium instruction.

Highlights

  • Focus your studies in your particular area of interest, and gain a better theoretical and practical understanding of the challenges and opportunities related to English medium instruction.
  • Take a specific English Medium Instruction module, conduct research in this area as part of an Action Research module, and choose a dissertation topic to research further into the field of teaching young learners.
  • Join experienced practitioners and scholars in the English language teaching community, with opportunities to be involved 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 apply these through practical assessments and peer teaching sessions.
  • Engage in, and reflect on, a new language learning experience as part of the programme to gain a 360 degree perspective on language teaching and learning.

Careers

TESOL graduates are equipped with a range of skills and experiences which allow them to take on a variety of roles. The majority of TESOL students work within education, either as teachers or lecturers, as researchers, or as policymakers. Other graduates work in publishing, journalism and management. If you choose not to complete the dissertation required for the award of an MSc, there are exit awards available that allow suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of an MSc.
