Program description

MSc Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

This flexible MSc has been developed for teachers and other TESOL professionals, such as educational administrators, inspectors, materials or curriculum developers, assessment specialists and policy makers, as well as those planning to undertake doctoral study in TESOL or applied linguistics.

The programme particularly values the professional experience that participants bring to the course. It provides a learning context in which you can reflect on your professional practice, the policies and diverse contextual factors that frame it, the theoretical frameworks that inform it, and the research that exists or could be conducted to substantiate or refute intuitive judgments.

Admission requirements

A good UK undergraduate honours degree (or international equivalent) in English Language, TESOL or applied linguistics, and be able to demonstrate part-time or full-time classroom teaching experience or other TESOL-industry relevant experience. Examples of the types of roles we consider relevant are:

  • Language curriculum developer
  • Language testers
  • ELT materials designers
  • Language teaching assistants
  • Researchers in a field relevant to TESOL

Applicants who hold a good UK undergraduate honours degree (or international equivalent) in a non-language related subject need to demonstrate a minimum of one year's full-time classroom teaching or other TESOL-industry relevant experience.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language, you need to meet this profile level: For applicants whose first language is not English we require proof of English proficiency of IELTS 7 overall, with all sub-tests of 6 or above or equivalent.
