Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages with ICT

The TESOL with ICT MA at Brighton is 1 of a limited number of courses in the UK that allow language teachers to explore the role of media in the teaching and learning of languages, combining academic study with the design and development of materials. The course is designed for professionals who already have experience of 2nd language teaching, either in the UK or abroad. As with the other MAs in Brighton's English Language Teacher Development programme, it encourages students to locate enquiries in their own professional context, so they can apply newly acquired skills and knowledge directly. The department has an extensive range of digital media capture and editing equipment, its own dedicated computer pool, and access to a television studio in the Checkland building, allowing students to work with the digital tools required for materials design and production. Typical areas for investigation include print, audio, audiovisual, interactive multimedia, podcasting, e‑learning, social software such as blogs and wikis, and interactive electronic whiteboards. Our graduates have gone on to successful positions not only in 2nd language teaching but also in the development and evaluation of language learning materials, for example, as project managers, materials authors and developers, self-access centre managers, and teacher trainers in the area of blended learning.

Entry requirements

Degree and/or experience: The MA is usually open to 2nd language teachers with more than 2 years of teaching experience. Places are normally given to those who have a good first degree (BA or BSc), and a high standard of spoken and written English. It is also an advantage to have some form of initial teaching qualification. Credit towards the MA (up to 60 credits) can be given to applicants who have completed our own Diploma in TESOL (level 7), or who have completed an equivalent Diploma in TESOL (such as the DELTA or Trinity Diploma in TESOL). English language requirements: IELTS score of at least 6.5 overall, with no significant weaknesses in any particular area of the test.
