With their strong knowledge base in teaching and research, our graduates work worldwide in all areas of the English language teaching profession.
Example roles include:
- Training other TESOL teachers
- Managing TESOL education
- Teaching English at primary, secondary or tertiary levels
- Teaching English in specialised fields (for example, Business English)
- Designing TESOL curricula, materials and policies
Representatives from international teacher recruitment agencies visit our campus every year to talk to our students. They also conduct on-campus interviews with students shortlisted for TESOL-related posts.
Some of our students also stay with us to pursue research degrees in the areas of TESOL, Language Education and Applied Linguistics.
I am now working as a teacher and materials writer in Mongolia, while also planning a research paper for the near future. Even though I had a lot of teaching experience before I took the MSc TESOL, the course was hugely beneficial to me because it connected the practical experience I'd had with language-teaching theory and enabled me to understand my profession comprehensively. As such, I am now able to carry out academic research and take on senior roles in the TESOL sector with confidence, and this is thanks to the high quality of education that I received at the University of Edinburgh.
The University of Edinburgh's Careers Service supports all current students (and graduates for up to 2 years) to develop their potential and achieve satisfying and rewarding futures.
