Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Translation Studies

The MA in TESOL and Translation Studies is for those who wish to pursue a career in TESOL and acquire additional expertise in translation theory and practice. It is designed for those who have little or no teaching experience and builds on our extensive experience and highly successful distance learning Masters programmes in TESOL. A distinctive feature is the Teaching in Practice module. You can develop more in-depth skills by choosing your optional module. Sample module options.

Entry requirements

MA: A good UK Honours Degree (minimum 2:1) in Translation Studies or in French and/or German and/or Spanish, or an overseas degree recognised by Aston University, plus two references. The information contained on this website details the typical entry requirements for this course for the most commonly offered qualifications. Applicants with alternative qualifications may wish to enquire with the relevant admissions teams prior to application whether or not their qualifications are deemed acceptable. For less commonly encountered qualifications this will be judged on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the academic admissions tutor. Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to provide evidence of an English language qualification.

Assessment methods

You will take part in interactive seminars, presentations and group work as well as attending lectures and tutorials. There are also opportunities for individual research. Assessment is on a credit accumulation basis and by written examination (practical translation modules), oral examination (text analysis module), extended essay (remaining modules). For Teaching in Practice, teaching performance will also be assessed. Successful completion of the taught modules is a precondition for proceeding to a 15,000 word dissertation leading to the MA.
