Course Description

Overview

Learn to teach English to speakers of other languages at UEA, advance your career prospects internationally and help people all over the world unlock their potential and communicate across borders.

More than 1.5 billion people speak English around the world, and the number is likely to grow in the future years. With more and more people learning English, the demand for high-quality English language teaching is set to grow as well.

With this MA TESOL qualification from one of the UK’s leading universities, you'll be able to meet TESOL professional demands. You’ll kick start a career that could see you work anywhere in the world and/or progress your existing career in any number of different sectors.

About This Course

The careful design of this academic Master’s course will meet your specific needs as a current or future English language practitioner. You'll acquire in-depth expertise in your field and graduate ready to contribute to the teaching of English worldwide, for example, as a teacher, policy maker, or academic researcher.

Over one year of full-time study, you'll develop your advanced teaching and learning skills and cultivate a breadth of knowledge about teaching English to speakers of other languages. You will also benefit from the depth of study that comes with this unique Master’s-level programme.

You’ll study with top academics, who are active researchers and educators in the fields of TESOL, language education, applied linguistics and education. These highly experienced professionals have worked in a range of different countries and will share their pedagogical/research expertise with you.

During your MA TESOL, you’ll develop critical awareness of both current practice and research in English language teaching in the UK and internationally. You’ll also become an expert in matters of professional responsibility, integrity and ethics – essential for your later career. At the same time, you’ll build your academic and linguistic skills, including transferable skills such as independent study, critical thinking, and effective spoken and written communication in English.

One key feature of your time as an MA TESOL student at UEA is the ability to customize the curriculum to your own needs. For example, you’ll have the option to complete a dissertation, focusing on a research topic of your choice, or to add to your breadth of knowledge by taking additional taught modules.

Upon completion of the MA TESOL, you may also decide to pursue an additional qualification – a CELTA – with a local partner of ours. You’ll have the opportunity of starting it right after the MA TESOL, and you’ll benefit from a promotional rate.
