Our programme is particularly suitable for teachers, teacher trainers, language school directors, curriculum developers, inspectors, lecturers and materials writers that want a deeper understanding of the theoretical background, practices and research in both TESOL and ICT.


This programme for experienced TESOL professionals will equip you to use ICT in developing TESOL materials or delivering teaching.

Suitable for teachers, teacher trainers, language school directors, curriculum developers, inspectors, lecturers and materials writers, the programme offers you practical experience of using ICT to develop learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. You’ll also experience e-learning first-hand, as you learn through a mixture of face-to-face and online methods.

You’ll study the same core modules as students on other TESOL programmes, exploring how people learn languages and the strategies that have been developed for language teaching. Then you’ll choose from optional modules focusing on the use of ICT in TESOL, including digital learning environments and the practice of digital learning.

Taught by expert practitioners and researchers, this programme will give you the skills and confidence to use ICT as a key asset in the classroom.

Please note that this is not an IT skills training course, and we will expect you to have basic IT skills such as word processing, email and using the internet before you start the programme.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:


    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.
