Study with us
We offer large-scale, world-class masters' programmes in:
- Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages - TESOL (MSc/PgDip/PGCert)
- Language Education (MSc/PgDip)
- Language and Intercultural Communication (MSc/PgDip/PgCert)
The latest research in the areas of language and communication underpins all of our teaching.
Our staff make critical contributions to other programmes and work closely with teacher education teams in other institutes.
Our programmes align with the Shared Learning Spaces initiative. This initiative aims to connect people around the world by breaking down physical and language barriers so everyone can share in and enjoy teaching and learning.
We carry out cutting-edge interdisciplinary research into global language education issues and challenges.
We are closely aligned with the 'Language, Interculturality and Literacies Research Hub' which brings together a broad range of fields into three key groupings: language(s), literacies and interculturality.
