Our TESOL Masters programme brings together students from a diverse range of cultural, academic, linguistic and professional backgrounds.
Note: All taught courses worth 20 credits require 200 hours' work. Of this normally about 24 hours are lectures and workshops, and the rest is independent study and assignment writing.
This will be awarded to students who successfully complete 60 credits of compulsory courses, and who do not complete other courses.
This will be awarded to students who successfully complete all compulsory courses and two option courses (total 120 credits), and who do not proceed to the MSc.
This will be awarded to those who successfully complete all compulsory courses, two option courses and a dissertation (total 180 credits).
The following are the option courses (20 credits each). Students choose two options which run in Semester 2:
|Evaluation and Design of TESOL Materials|
|Investigating Individual Learner Differences|
|Language Awareness for Second Language Teachers|
|Language and Culture Pedagogy|
|Online Language Learning|
|Second Language Teacher Education|
|Teaching Text Across Borders|
|Theory and Practice of Second Language Learning|
Note: Option course availability may vary subject to staffing arrangements and student numbers.
Note that the 10 credits proposal is normally taken in Semester 2 prior to the progression decision but counts as part of the MSc credits rather than the taught component (120 credits).
This is flexible and depends on your needs. Email the TESOL Programme Director to discuss a structure that suits you.
