Course Summary

This course MA TESOL with Applied Linguistics (E-Learning) will provide students with an internationally recognised master’s degree that will enable them to progress to the next level in their career in language education. While students will study the same modules as they would on the full-time campus-based version of the course, they will be able to pursue the online route as a part-time student. The online format provides students with the flexibility to blend their career and postgraduate studies in a complimentary way. While this is a rigorous course which we expect them to complete within 2-5 years, it has been designed with the part-time adult learner in mind and incorporates a paced delivery method in which you will progress through each module as a group over a 12-week period.

The MA aims to equip students with an in-depth understanding of teaching methodology, lexis, grammar and phonology, and the way in which language is learned. Students will also have the opportunity to study for a range of optional modules in EAP, course and materials design, and computer-assisted language learning among others. We use a variety of assessment procedures including essays, portfolios, presentations, practical projects, online discussions and group activities. Assessment in all cases is designed to promote deep learning and to aid your reflective, analytical and problem-solving skills. We currently have graduates working in ELT positions in schools, language institutes and universities in a variety of countries, including the UK, Japan, Malaysia, China, Thailand and Saudi Arabia. A number of our graduates progress to research degrees at the PhD level.
