The MA International Education programme is designed to give students a well-rounded and critical insight into the field of international education. Read more
The MA International Education programme is designed to give students a well-rounded and critical insight into the field of international education. It is designed for students who plan to contribute to advancing scholarship in International Education and aims to give students the conceptual awareness so that they can begin to shape their own academic futures. The programme will help students to gain a critical insight into research and theoretical knowledge of aspects of international, comparative and global education, which are important both internationally and in contemporary national contexts. It gives an opportunity for students to investigate and better understand their own contexts and those of interest to them in other countries.

For instance, the MA International Education allows international students to investigate and analyse education in England while critically analysing education systems in other countries. It provides a stimulating learning environment including the opportunity for students to learn about comparative educational context from their peers. It encourages students to consider what good practice, if any, may be applicable to their own context. This route is appropriate for overseas students who wish to practice in their own countries or UK based students who wish to develop their own understanding and practice in global education or build experience relevant to a career in education overseas. This may be in teaching, leadership and/or administrative roles. There remains strong demand for English-medium education, particularly in Asia, and this programme takes account of that.

TESOL is an acronym for both the study and practice of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Read more
TESOL is an acronym for both the study and practice of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. TESOL embraces many different aspects of language teaching and learning to include EAL (English as an Additional Language), ESL (English as a Second Language), EFL (English as a Foreign Language) and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

The MA TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is a UK-based academic Masters degree that is designed to develop existing professional skills. The programme will engage you in the critical analysis of contemporary discussion and debate surrounding the teaching of languages in both foreign and second language contexts around the world. It is not an English language or teacher training course.

If you are passionate about teaching English to speakers of other languages and want to deepen your knowledge, understanding and practical skills in language learning and education, then this is the programme for you.

What will I study?

The MA TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) will expand your understanding of contemporary theory in English language teaching as well as enhancing your professional, practical and reflective skills. The modules are designed to advance your research skills and help you strengthen the links between theoretical perspectives and effective TESOL practice.

You will be able to choose your own focus of study through the combination of compulsory and optional modules. The core modules focus on educational theories in the context of second language learning, important recent research and developments in language teaching, and the needs of the learner within the ESL classroom.

Whilst studying on the programme you may develop a particular interest in areas such as the educational management of TESOL, the key issues faced by both international students and educators of international students, or teaching English as a second/foreign/additional language to young learners or those with specific learning difficulties. You will have the opportunity to specialise in one of these areas by selecting an optional module.

How will I study?

Our teaching methods follow a variety of formats from traditional-style lectures to tutorials, seminars and workshops. Teaching materials are accessible via our virtual learning environment and will include regular formative tasks for you to work through with the help of an assigned academic tutor. You will also engage in individually-directed activities, tailored to your personal and professional interests and needs, in preparation for module assessment.

How will I be assessed?

Summative assessment is based mainly on a portfolio-building approach. You will also be engaged in writing reflective accounts, projects, essays and an extended research study based on your personal professional interests. You will be given clear assessment criteria and constructive feedback for each piece of work.

Formative assessment opportunities are also embedded in each module, where you will receive individual feedback on in-session tasks and selected drafts of your work.

Who will be teaching me?

The programme is delivered by experienced and well-qualified staff, the majority of whom will have worked in TESOL-related environments. Other tutors will bring TESOL-relevant experience from other education institutions. Many tutors are currently studying for, or have already gained, a PhD and possess strong research profiles, with experience presenting at many conferences nationally and internationally.

What are my career prospects?

You will graduate ready to contribute academically and professionally to the rapidly changing world of international English language education.

The range of professional skills developed through the programme will ensure you are well placed to find employment all over the world, as a teacher, trainer, lecturer, instructor, administrator or director of study within language schools, colleges of further education, universities or organisations such as the British Council. Alternatively, you may wish to consider embarking on MPhil or doctoral research.
