Course content

The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE, December 2008).

Our International Academy has over 30 years experience of working with international students and teachers of English.

We have designed our MA TESOL to give both native and non-native speakers some teaching experience at high school level and above. We enable you to update and extend your knowledge of current concepts and theories relating to TESOL methodology and practice. We place emphasis on the practical application of the theoretical bases of TESOL to classroom practice within an expanding global teaching environment. In order to reflect the link between theory and practice, micro-teaching, collaborative classroom observation and small-scale research form part of your assessment.

Our MA TESOL will be particularly attractive if you are a teacher who is unable to leave employment for a full year, as each component can be considered as a complete course. Credits awarded at each exit point can be accumulated and transferred to the next stage, so you can build up sufficient credits to progress through the different levels, from 60 credits (Postgraduate Certificate), to 120 credits (Postgraduate Diploma) and 180 credits (Masters). Our assessment includes a 12,000-word supervised dissertation based on original TESOL related research. Delivery is flexible, so you can study full-time for one year or part-time over two years, and we also offer modular study, which allows you to complete our course within a maximum of six years.
