Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

The course aims to develop critical understanding of recent developments in TESOL theory and practice and to stimulate students to reflect on their own teaching. It also prepares students to conduct independent research into teaching and learning. There are 3 core areas of study: the language learner and language learning; applied linguistics for TESOL; developments in TESOL methodology. In addition, a range of options is offered, providing students with considerable freedom in selecting course components to suit their individual needs and interests. Students are also encouraged to develop their own areas of interest through their dissertation research.

If applicants have a 1st degree that does not include a focus on language teaching theory and methodology, then they must have a minimum of 9 months full-time classroom English language teaching experience (650 hours of part-time experience). Please note that teaching experience calculation should not include any teaching practicum taken as part of a course. English language requirements: IELTS 7.0 (no less than 6.5 in any element).
