“I enjoyed studying on the MA TESOL. I found the programme amazing and the teachers very approachable and knowledgeable. I also appreciated studying in a small group as I was able to get a great deal of the tutors’ attention. I find that when I prepare for classes, I can always draw on what I learned from the programme and apply that to my lesson plans.”
