TESOL with ICT offered by University of Brighton is one of a limited number of courses in the UK that allow language teachers to explore in depth the role of media and educational technologies in the teaching and learning of English as a foreign, other, or second language.


TESOL with ICT degree offered by University of Brighton is for experienced English language teachers who want to make effective use of technology to support the teaching and learning of English. Core to this will be your knowledge of teaching, your linguistic competence in English, and your understanding of the available technologies and how to integrate them into teaching and learning. These areas are all covered in the range of modules which make up the course.

To investigate the potential of technology in English language teaching (ELT), traditional media technologies such as coursebooks are considered, as are a variety of digital technologies including social media, mobile technologies, video-conferencing tools, online collaborative workspaces, and more.


The TESOL with ICT MA equips language teachers for roles of responsibility and creativity in managing the use of educational technologies to support language teaching and learning, developing language learning materials, designing courses, and educating language teachers.

Students have also gone on to work in companies that produce or deliver language learning materials or instruction. They include the co-founder of a successful electronic publishing house, a principal developer in the UK's leading e-learning company, and a manager of educational technologies in British Council schools.
