Course Description

Programme description

This programme provides the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge and enhance existing pedagogical expertise. Highly flexible, and suitable for recent graduates and professionals alike, we offer a range of study options that can be tailored to your career aims.

You will explore the theory and methods of language teaching, gain research skills, and focus on your choice of option subjects, ranging from language testing and TESOL course design to media analysis and online language learning. A key strength of the programme is our world-class staff offering support in three separate language areas: English, modern foreign languages and TESOL.

Programme structure

For the MSc you will complete six compulsory courses and two option courses, plus a dissertation. The PgDip and PgCert comprise similar combinations of compulsory and option courses.

Career opportunities

You will enhance your language abilities in both research and teaching practice.

Completion of the masters degree may take you into advanced research studies and an academic career path.

The assessed and non-assessed Continuing Professional Development option will prove invaluable if you are looking to expand your current teaching role, and the transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and project management will be an asset in any role you may undertake in the future.
