Program Description:

If you intend to become a professional teacher of English but have little or no prior teaching experience, then our MA Teaching English as a Foreign Language offers you vocationally-relevant training through teaching practice and allows you to plan, execute and reflect on real teaching. Our core module, in both terms, is on materials and methods of language teaching together with practice of teaching real classes. At least 20 other ELT/TESOL modules are normally available as options. Unlike our other courses, MA Teaching English as a Foreign Language can only accommodate a limited number of students, so early application is advisable.
