Program overview

If you already have some teaching experience or an education degree but want to learn more, this Masters course will be ideal for you. It combines a strong educational element with a focus on Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The design of the course also makes it suitable if you want to teach subjects other than English. You’ll graduate with a solid grounding in the principles of language learning and teaching, as well as an understanding of research methods in TESOL. During your studies, you’ll be taught by TESOL professionals who have experience of working all over the world, as well as visiting local schools to learn about the pastoral role of teachers – particularly in relation to issues of difference, diversity and inclusion. Whether you’re planning to teach in a local or international school, our Education Studies and TESOL degree will give you a broader understanding of educational theory and practice that will help you better engage with students from a wide range of backgrounds.
