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.
Alternatively, there may also be the opportunity to explore TESOL in depth on our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy.

I worked as an English teacher at a refugee centre. The MA TESOL provided me with some fantastic extracurricular opportunities, allowing me to put my skills into practice and gain valuable hands-on experience.
