This programme is aimed at practising teachers and graduates with relevant teaching experience and has a strong practical focus. It provides a flexible, module-based pathway of advanced study in English Language Teaching (ELT). It offers you a comprehensive overview of the field and encourages you to engage critically with current thinking about language learning and language teaching at a time of rapid global change in education.
The MA ELT consists of four modules and a dissertation which includes research methods training. The programme has a strong action research focus which will enable students to carry out classroom-based research projects in their own educational contexts. In addition the role of materials is considered at all levels of theory and practice.
The programme is designed to be flexible and compatible with the lives of working teachers. For this reasons students may opt to begin the programme in September or February. The MA is part-time over two years, although some students may wish to take longer – in which case modules may be spread over six years in consultation with the programme leader.
Students who have accumulated 60 credits by completing two modules may be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate, and students who have accumulated 120 credits by completing four modules may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma. The MA is awarded to students who have accumulated 180 credits by completing all four modules, the research methods training, and the dissertation.
