We’ve designed this programme for teachers, teacher trainers and materials writers in the field of Foreign Language Teaching (particularly English as a Foreign Language).

More particularly, the programme aims to:

Help you to apply relevant applied linguistics research and theory to the practicalities of language teaching
Assist you in developing a deeper understanding of current classroom methodology, as well as of current developments in testing, in course design and in materials development
Increase your awareness and knowledge of the latest approaches to language analysis, and of their potential for application to language teaching.

Normally you’ll need a first degree and relevant professional experience before applying for this programme.

Our academic staff have extensive experience of teaching internationally and working on projects and have active research interests and publications. Student feedback consistently indicates how much they appreciate our tutors’ friendly and patient support as well as their excellent academic and professional abilities.

You’ll take four core modules, along with three further taught options from a wide selection offered each year. There’ll also be a dissertation to write, normally on a subject related to the topics covered in the taught modules.

Career opportunities

Many graduates choose to enter careers such as teaching, publishing and journalism, or to work in the business sector, often in human resources, administration, marketing or sales.
