Key Course Facts

Course Description

The programme is offered on a full-time basis to home and international students at Paisley Campus. It is also available to home students on a flexible, blended learning basis, with some attendance at Paisley and London Campuses. It is aimed at those who intend to work as TESOL professionals, teaching English at home or abroad.

Students will be equipped with the relevant, practical teaching and English language skills as well as the confidence and citizenship skills gained from developing language learnt in situ. You will be supported, throughout, in considering the role of language in a global context and the associated benefits for citizens, nationally and internationally, as developing linguists; that is, how to enhance both their own prospects and those of their prospective students in a global context.

There will be opportunities for practice-related learning for all students: this will comprise the opportunity to use practical knowledge of language and teaching pedagogy gained from the programme on a short teaching practice within the field of TESOL.
