Course summary

This MA is designed to help you develop professionally as an English language teacher in a global context.

The two pathways mean you can develop your skills whether you are an experienced language teacher or at the beginning your career. A flexible module structure allows you to follow your interests, whether that's digital resources, becoming a teacher trainer, or the development of materials.

You will apply theory to practice through teaching, observation and reflection. All learning is supported by digital resources and a superb online library provision, as well as support for academic writing and study skills. Our tutors are experienced in English language teaching, teacher education and the use of digital media for language teaching.

You will have the option to add a teaching assessment module to gain an initial TEFL qualification (TEFL-I) or a diploma-level qualification (TEFL-Q), depending on the amount of teaching experience you have.
