The MA offers a broad introduction to many of the key concepts and theories that lie behind language teaching and learning. You will be encouraged to think of language as more than a set of rules. Instead, you will recognise it as a complex, constantly evolving process with personal, social and educational consequences.

The practical teaching module provides you with the opportunity to practise and develop your practical teaching and reflective skills in a supportive environment and enables you to apply the knowledge gained during the course to developing your own teaching style.

Northumbria is one of the largest university-based providers of English Language teaching in the UK, with extensive experience of teaching TESOL qualifications.

Modules and Learning

The course combines exciting subject-specific content with an emphasis on the development of independent analytical and research skills.

You will study four subject-specific modules, developed to help you acquire the core knowledge and skills appropriate to the study of TESOL, and a dissertation of approximately 15,000 words.

Our learning and teaching strategy is designed to deliver a stimulating, supportive, student-centred environment through a combination of lectures, seminars, group workshops and individual tutorials.

We use a diverse range of assessment methods including written coursework, dissertation, presentations, examinations, portfolios, learning diaries and analysis of transcribed samples of speech.
