Course summary

The Diploma in TESOL at the University of Brighton is a postgraduate professional qualification for experienced English language teachers wanting to develop their practice and understanding of English Language Teaching (ELT).

The Diploma combines assessed teaching practice with academic study into aspects of language teaching and learning such as ELT methodology, use of technologies, materials, language analysis and exploration and second language acquisition.
