University of York
Teaching English to Young Learners
This course is a professional development distance learning programme and is specially designed to cater for the needs of a range of professionals currently, or about to be, involved in aspects of teaching English to young learners, including children up to 16 years of age at pre-school, primary and secondary level. The programme involves attendance at two intensive introductory modules, either online, or face-to-face at a partner learning centre. An intensive module will take place at the beginning of each of the two years of study.
Good degree (UK 2.1 or above, USA grade point average 3.2 or above, China average degree score 80 or above); or a teacher training qualification from a recognised University/College; or formal evidence of teaching experience; and teaching experience of approximately 3 years.
Continuous assessment on the programme is carried out by way of each intensive module and eight assignments and projects without the requirement to submit one large dissertation. Each student will be assigned a supervisor at the start of the distance programme who will maintain regular contact with them throughout the course.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Masters Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities.
