The MA TESOL is studied part time through our online virtual learning environment. Whether you are an experienced English language teacher who wishes to undertake pedagogical development through work-based learning or also wish to develop your full career potential, the course helps you achieve your aspirations. You study as part of the TESOL Centre's community of expert teachers, teacher trainers, and researchers.
