Course Summary

Is this course right for you? We’ve designed our TESOL course for people in the UK, Europe and beyond who are interested in teaching English as a second or foreign language. You’ll be looking to boost your professional skills, discuss language learning and leap into the analysis of teaching English around the globe.

Together we’ll explore the theories and key principles of language education. Our teaching is rooted in practice meaning you’ll be able to apply everything you learn in your own classroom. At the same time, you’ll become aware of national and international issues in teaching English to other language speakers. You’ll also explore debates around the role of non-native speaker teachers.

Our unique Educational Management module delves into practical educational management challenges and helps you prepare for more senior roles. Outside of the classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a conference and boost your CV with work experience such as teaching English to local refugees and asylum seekers.


Researching TESOL provides you with a thorough and rigorous theoretical and practical insight into an area of TESOL theory or practice through your engagement with a research project based on your individual interests and experience in the field. This module will enhance your research skills and enable you to utilise your previous academic learning and practical experiences in TESOL to culminate in the presentation of your findings.
