Master of Education (MEd) Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) (part-time) - Summer Intensive Course

Careers

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.

Our MEd offers excellent preparation for progression to PhD or professional doctorate (EdD).

In addition, depending on the modules taken, completion of the MEd in TESOL can help you move into new areas within TESOL such as teacher education and training, English for special purposes, materials development and the teaching of English to young learners.

The course has improved my practical and theoretical knowledge of teaching English to speakers of other languages and feedback from my students and colleagues has shown me I am becoming more skilled as a teacher, which has been great. As a result, I have been given opportunities to design and implement independent learning courses and have co-chaired alternative assessment committees. I feel it is also worth mentioning the financial rewards I have experienced as a result of studying; the MEd was a precondition for extending my contract, but it has also resulted in me moving through the salary bands as I have become more experienced and qualified.
