Program description

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with a Specialism MSc (Jan 2021 Entry)

The TESOL MSc gives students the opportunity to integrate the theory and practice of teaching English to speakers of other languages.

Students who have an interest in a particular field of TESOL can also choose one of five specialism to focus their studies on. Students who choose to study for a TESOL specialism degree follow a similar structure to the TESOL MSc degree and take modules that focus on their chosen specialism.

The five specialisms available are:

  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Teaching Young Learners
  • English Medium Instruction
  • English for Academic Purposes
  • Technology for Teaching

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 an MSc 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.

The qualifications listed are indicative minimum requirements for entry. Obtaining the listed entry requirements will not guarantee you a place, as the University considers all aspects of every application including, where applicable, the personal statement, and supporting documents.
