Overview

This course explores contemporary research issues and a variety of teaching methodologies in English Language Teaching (ELT). You will broaden your understanding of the theoretical and practical issues faced by ELT teachers and learners in the classroom.

You will take part in teaching practice sessions where appropriate, and examine current research trends and issues. The MA ELT aims to bridge the theoretical knowledge of language teaching and learning with pedagogical practice in classroom teaching. Therefore we welcome applications from both native and non-native English speakers, and we do not require prior teaching experience.

The MA ELT includes core modules such as Trends and Issues in Communicative Classroom, Teaching of Receptive and Productive Skills, and Research Methods. You can also choose two of the following optional modules: English for Specific Purposes and Course Design, Assessing Language, and Psycholinguistics. The main characteristic of this programme is that it highlights the application of theoretical knowledge to classroom teaching situations. It is designed primarily to develop your future career prospects in ELT; and also lead to further postgraduate research in the areas of English language teaching and learning.

Career opportunities

There has never been a better time to enhance your career prospects as an ELT expert. This course can provide a gateway to prestigious careers as a teacher at internationally-recognised English language institutions. In addition this is the type of qualification that most universities or other tertiary organisations now require for lecturers of English for academic purposes. This qualification will assure prospective employers not only of your theoretical awareness of ELT-related issues and trends but also of your ability and acumen as a teacher of ELT at the highest level.
