Why choose our Education: Language programme?

Our Masters degree offers students the opportunity to gain an academic qualification from a world-class university. In addition, all our students enjoy personal support throughout their studies and will receive guidance and support on academic reading and writing.

Flexibility within this Masters programme also means that each course can be studied by teachers independently of the Masters programme as assessed or non-assessed CPD.

The Masters programme will enable students to develop as researchers and as reflective practitioners within a high-quality professional development environment. Students will also develop their intellectual, practical and transferable skills by extending and deepening their knowledge in five specific areas.

The Masters programme enables students to gain and demonstrate important transferable skills. Such as:

  • conducting and maintaining effective communication
  • critical thinking
  • reflective practice
  • the use and design of a range of learning environments
  • independent learning and self-management
  • collaborative group working in a variety of contexts
  • written communication in modes specific to the language learning environment
  • the maintenance of interpersonal relationships in a variety of modes
  • time management and organisation
  • information management
  • research planning, data gathering, analysis and reporting

I am sure you will enjoy studying here in Edinburgh where you will develop and extend your intellectual and cultural horizons. We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Edinburgh.
