About this course

The TESOL programme is for teachers of English as a second or foreign language. The degree offers a broad introduction to many of the key concepts and theories which underpin language teaching.

You will develop your knowledge of language and language study, and examine theories which might lie behind teaching practices. Throughout the programme, you will be encouraged to reflect upon the relationship between theory and practice in your own professional context. The programme will also help you to become aware of the personal, social, and political consequences of your work as an English Language teacher.

Your Course in Brief

Learning is undertaken by a variety of means including lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and independent study. You will engage in peer-teaching workshops and the course offers a supportive environment for student learning.

Our programme draws upon an extensive range of staff expertise and upon the professional experience which you can bring to your studies. It can also serve as an introduction to work at PhD level.

Students take two core modules, 'Issues and Trends in Classroom Language Teaching' and 'Investigating Second Language Acquisition.' A range of option modules are also offered, allowing students to style the programme according to their own practical interests. The dissertation consists of a larger piece of independent research of approximately 15,000 words.
