Course summary

Course description

Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.

The MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) offers you the opportunity to develop your essential teaching skills and professional knowledge. The course is designed to provide a thorough grounding in both the theory and practice of English language teaching.

This is a rigorous qualification which provides you with strong all-round skills development and up-to-date subject knowledge. It is highly valued by educational employers and will help to raise your profile when seeking to launch or advance your career as a language teaching professional.

This postgraduate degree will provide you with the basic practical skills you need to enter a language classroom with confidence and enhance your subject knowledge of the English language. You will develop your language teaching ability at a range of levels, in different cultural and institutional contexts. You will also have an opportunity to develop an understanding of professional issues related to English language teaching and learning.

We pride ourselves on the level of support we provide to our students. You will be supported by a personal tutor who, where possible, will remain with you throughout the course, and you will also have access to the full range of university support services. Participating in the learning activities and accessing the academic support services available to University of Leicester students will also help you develop your fluency and accuracy in speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Teaching and learning

Your teaching will consist of lectures, seminars and workshops, with tutorial support. You will be assessed through written assignments and some tests, presentations and project work, depending on the particular module. You will be encouraged to develop your transferable skills, including IT and communication skills.

Careers and employability

The MA in TESOL provides you with a thorough grounding in key theoretical and practical issues relevant to the needs of professionals in an increasingly global and competitive field. Many of our graduates have secured initial teaching positions or taken on additional roles in existing positions in a wide range of teaching contexts.
