Career opportunities

With their strong foundation in teaching and research, our students are employed worldwide in all areas of language education.

This MSc programme aims to:

  • Develop well-rounded educators who can teach any or all of their language(s)
  • Develop graduates who can take on additional roles in this field such as testing, teacher education and course design and evaluation
  • Support students to develop creative ways to link theory to their own language education context
  • Equip students to engage in research during the masters and beyond as a form of reflective practice.

Graduates of the MSc Language Education can:

  • Show an understanding of both seminal and recent concepts and theories in the field of Language Education
  • Critically review and engage with key principles underlying the field
  • Plan and execute a significant piece of research of your choice relevant to the field of Language Education

Having received a wealth of fascinating knowledge during the MSc Language Teaching, my current job has been entirely transformed. The methods professors used in class were absolutely unprecedented in Asian classes. I now use them in my own teaching.
