The following video provides an overview of the programme and includes interviews with staff and students.



The University of Exeter is the only UK university to offer a face-to-face Summer Intensive MEd TESOL.*

The programme is aimed at teachers of all education levels hoping to further develop their TESOL training. A Masters in TESOL has international recognition and is seen as an important professional qualification worldwide to enable TESOL teachers to enhance their career prospects. In particular, it is often seen as an important entry qualification for educators who want to work at University level.

The programme provides you with a theoretical overview of key aspects of TESOL; an introduction to educational research; and an understanding of how to conduct research in the field of TESOL. It also allows you to specialise in optional modules of your choice and to enhance your opportunities for career progression.

The next Summer Intensive MEd TESOL programme will run in 2017.

Please Note: The MEd TESOL in NOT a distance learning or online programme. All module teaching is done on camnpus by lectures who are University of Exeter members of staff.
