Overview

What will you study

English Language (Distance) degree offered at Lancaster University here refers to the study of English as a foreign language, not the practice of English.

It is designed to appeal to a wide audience (including U.K. teachers of the English Language A level).

Each of the six modules, spread over two years, begins with a Saturday face-to-face session: these residentials are compulsory. In the first year, they will be held at Lancaster University’s outlet in London; in the second year, they will be held at Lancaster University itself. The remainder of the course is taught via the web, with assessment via coursework and learning supported by an online forum. The final year involves a dissertation supported by an individual supervisor.
