Program description

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Distance PG Cert (Sept 2021 Entry)

The distance learning Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages gives students the opportunity to focus on a particular area of interest, and study four modules which will be of relevance to their career, as part of their on-going professional development.

The TESOL distance learning PG Cert is also available to study with a specialism in one of the following areas:

  • Assessment and Evaluation (Distance Learning)
  • English for Academic Purposes (Distance Learning)
  • English Medium Instruction (Distance Learning)
  • Teaching Young Learners (Distance Learning)
  • Technology for Teaching (Distance Learning)

The distance learning TESOL PG Certificates are part-time courses studied over a period of one to five years. They are run by the International Education Institute. They are designed to be particularly useful to experienced English language teachers as part of their continuous professional development, as well as those considering a career in English language teaching.

All PG Cert distance learning students take four modules. If you choose to study for the PG Cert without a specialism, you choose any four modules to shape your studies and explore your own interests. If you choose to study for the PG Cert with a specialism in a particular field, you also take:

  • Action Research for Teachers
  • the relevant module for your specialism
  • two other modules of your choice.

Admission requirements

Applications are welcomed from all education systems. A good 2.1 Honours degree or 3.3/4.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) is typically required in any discipline. The School also consider applications from students who can provide significant professional or other relevant experience alongside evidence of prior alternative learning such as professional qualifications or certifications.

Some students may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) based on their previous studies, such as DELTA. The International Education Institute considers applications for RPL on a case by case basis in line with the University's recognition of prior learning policy.

For direct entry to a PG Certificate TESOL program, you will need an overall score in IELTS (Academic) of 6.5, with a minimum subscore of 6.0 or the equivalent. Students with a lower score may be eligible for a pre-sessional course. For alternative forms of evidence, see English language tests and qualifications.

The qualifications listed are indicative minimum requirements for entry. Some academic Schools will ask applicants to achieve significantly higher marks than the minimum. Obtaining the listed entry requirements will not guarantee you a place, as the University considers all aspects of every application including, where applicable, the writing sample, personal statement, and supporting documents.
