Our Master of Arts in TESOL programme aims to provide educators with in-depth knowledge and tools to advance their skills in teaching English as a Second or Foreign language. Excellent opportunities for key research in the fields of TESOL and Applied Linguistics are provided. This course is designed to better equip educators with the knowledge for enhanced application in a language learning classroom. Delivered by internationally-recognised researchers and grounded in their own experiences, our programme is designed to bridge the gap between research knowledge and application.
