A student walks down a spiral staircase in Catalyst, past two students who are sat working on laptops near a window with a view across to the eastern side of campus.As one of the major business and cultural languages around the world, teaching English to speakers of other languages can open the door to an exciting future in  English language education.

Suitable for home, EU and international participants who have classroom experience of teaching English as a second or foreign language, our MA TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) engages you in the critical analysis of contemporary discussion and debate surrounding the teaching of English in a variety of global contexts.

You will develop a strong conceptual understanding of the fundamental theories and key principles of language education, as well as gaining a critical awareness of key national and international issues at the forefront of TESOL.


Two students walk past the Law and Psychology building, which is also home to the Language Centre, at night.

The Language Centre is located on the ground floor of the new £6m Law and Psychology building. The three-storey building includes a 265-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.

The facilities include a dedicated language laboratory with 16 computer stations, a reading corner and work space. The language laboratory is used for teaching and also as a self-study facility, enabling you to participate in language learning activities in 15 different languages.

You can also access the EAP Toolkit, an online learning resource which provides practice opportunities in academic writing, reading, critical thinking, listening, note-taking, communication, vocabulary and grammar.
