Designed for TESOL professionals, this Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme at the University of Leeds will deepen your understanding of the foundations of TESOL while advancing your knowledge of key areas.


The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme at the University of Leeds follows the same syllabus as the MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme, but asks you to apply a practical, rather than theoretical, orientation to your final critical study.

Led by academics who are experts in this field of study, you will focus upon a professional issue within language education and apply ideas from your reading and a small-scale research study to find solutions to genuine English Language teaching problems.

Career opportunities

Our students frequently find that new career opportunities open up for them, either in their home countries or in new international settings. Students who return to their original classrooms often find they have fresh perspectives and their work becomes more rewarding and effective.

Some of our recent graduates have gone on to work in teaching, materials creation, curriculum design, language translation for commerical organisations, and outreach language support for charities and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). Our graduates have also gone on to start their own private language teaching business or move from school to university teaching.

We encourage students who do particularly well on the programme to consider doctoral level study with a view to an academic career.
