The taught M.A. in TESOL provides an opportunity for closely mentored postgraduate learning and research in the theoretical and practical aspects of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. This programme aims to assist in the development of a better informed cadre of English language professionals who are well equipped to research and contribute to language policy, course design and delivery, training and professional development, and TESOL management. It enhances awareness of issues surrounding the learning of English by speakers of other languages in different contexts around the world, and it leads to a range of career paths in the international TESOL industry. It offers focused and scholarly engagement with current theory and practice in second language acquisition, the learning of language skills and systems, the evaluation of English language proficiency, the use of digital technology in TESOL, and English for Specific Purposes. It provides the opportunity to conduct corpus-based research in English as a second and foreign language. A practicum component is also included and this enables students to conduct fieldwork in the English Language Teaching industry. This programme benefits from the expertise of specialist tutors of international repute with knowledge and experience of the global TESOL sector. The M.A. in TESOL furnishes students with the knowledge and skills needed to occupy a variety of academic and managerial roles worldwide.
