TESOL Intensive Summer programme

The University of Exeter is the only UK university to offer a face-to-face Summer Intensive MEd TESOL. The programme is aimed at teachers of all education levels hoping to further develop their TESOL training. A Masters in TESOL has international recognition and is seen as an important professional qualification worldwide to enable TESOL teachers to enhance their career prospects. In particular, it is often seen as an important entry qualification for educators who want to work at University level.

It is a three year programme. At the beginning of the first and second year you attend a one month intensive course during July in Exeter. Then you have the third year to write up your thesis which is based on a research study.

The programme provides you with a theoretical overview of key aspects of TESOL; an introduction to educational research; and an understanding of how to conduct research in the field of TESOL. It also allows you to specialise in optional modules of your choice and to enhance your opportunities for career progression.

Entry requirements

Each application is considered on an individual basis to determine suitability. However, applicants are typically expected to have a first degree in language or education, a teaching qualification, and a minimum of two years full-time relevant teaching experience.
