Chih-Shan Chuang, MSc Language Education 2022

'The degree certainly made me a more professional teacher who can effectively apply teaching strategies in the classroom and create a safe zone for students from diverse backgrounds.'

Xiaohuan Hao, MSc Language Education 2022

'Many courses in language teaching are integrated with sociological theory. This has enabled me to think about students, education and society on a broader level.'

Daniel Rocha, MSc Language Education 2022

'The workshop discussions were great, very helpful and quite engaging. The discussions were one of my favourite parts since through so many culturally different perspectives there was so much to learn and share.'

Keise Sano, MSc Language Education 2022

'I studied multilingualism (or plurilingualism), which is a totally different way of thinking with regards to language education than those prevalent in my country. It emancipated me from the ideology of native-speaker beliefs, which make some feel that they need to speak like 'native speakers', but also makes language learning difficult.'

Georgie Thorman, MSc Language Education 2022

'The broad nature of the programme really appealed to me - the fact that it was 'language education' not 'teaching English', meant that it would leave doors open to potentially teaching [another language] in the future.'

I really enjoyed this program and loved being surrounded each day by my amazing classmates from all around the world. Not only were courses interesting, but I felt that through invaluable collaboration with classmates, I learned a lot about language education in many different countries. This program also improved my time management skills, and increased my confidence and capacity for hard work.

Le staff du MSc nous accompagne durant notre parcours aussi bien au niveau des cours qu'au niveau personnel. L'ambiance générale entre les étudiants et avec le staff est aussi très agréable et fun et on organise des sorties entre nous tout au long de l'année. Je recommande vivement ce master!

The staff on the MSc course were with us all the way during the course on an academic and personal level. The atmosphere between the students and also the staff was very pleasant and fun and we organised outings and events throughout the year. I would strongly recommend this Masters course!
