Course Summary

The MA TESOL with Applied Linguistics (E-Learning) will provide you with an internationally recognised master’s degree that will enable you to progress to the next level in your career in language education. While you will study the same modules as you would on the full-time campus-based version of the course, you will be able to pursue the online route as a part-time student. The online format provides you with the flexibility to blend your career and postgraduate studies in a complimentary way. While this is a rigorous course which we expect you 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.

Learning Environment and Assessment

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.

The MA aims to equip you with an in-depth understanding of teaching methodology, lexis, grammar and phonology, and the way in which language is learned. You will also can study for a range of optional modules in EAP, course and materials design, and computer-assisted language learning among others. Following the e-learning path will help you to develop the analytical and reflective skills you need, while also giving you the flexibility to study where you want, when you want.
