This four-year BA English Language and TESOL degree with a year abroad opens up a range of exciting career possibilities – teaching English offers a great way to expand your horizons, and you will also gain transferable skills, which are highly valued by employers in many fields.Some 96% of graduates are employed or in further study within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers from HE survey 2015), and 71% of our students achieved a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in 2017/18.Students on this course typically develop excellent oral and writing skills and you will learn to present your ideas in a range of formats, along with strong research, analytical and problem-solving skills. English is ranked 7th in the UK for research (REF 2014) and ranked in the Top-15 for graduate prospects (The Times Good University Guide 2018 and The Complete University Guide 2019). Our graduates in English Language and TESOL have careers in education, teaching English as a foreign language, business, journalism, media and public relations, law and speech and language therapy.Based on our stunning Singleton Park campus, in parkland overlooking Swansea Bay on the edge of the Gower Peninsula, you will study language teaching methodology, vocabulary, grammar and meaning, psycholinguistics, first and second language acquisition and discourse analysis. You can also develop programming skills through computer-assisted language learning materials and receive training in research methods including reporting and analysis of data.You will have the option to obtain an internationally recognised, professional teaching qualification (Cambridge CELTA) to further enhance your career prospects.Year three you will spend abroad, studying at a university in Europe or the USA, further enhancing your student experience and career potential.Teaching on the course is informed by our world-leading research – English at Swansea is ranked seventh in the UK (Research Excellence Framework 2014) - and you can attend seminars organised through our guest speaker programme."I thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of modules on offer. The most important thing was the level of support from my lecturers. They all worked exceptionally hard, not just on a professional level, but also on a personal level to make sure I was comfortable, understood everything and worked to the best of my potential. I have reprised my role as an English teacher in China and also opened my own English school using the advice and training I received on my course. In my contracted employment I teach middle school and kindergarten, two jobs which before my degree I did not have the confidence to teach. However, armed with the knowledge I acquired, teaching is much easier and meaningful for both myself and my students." – English and TESOL graduate, Graham O'DonoghuePlease visit our course page for more information: swansea.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/artsandhumanities/tesol/ba-tesol-qx00/ **We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
