TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Edge Hill University is a UK-based academic Masters degree that is designed to develop existing professional skills. It is suitable for home, EU and international participants who have classroom experience of teaching English as a second or foreign language. The programme will engage you in the critical analysis of contemporary discussion and debate surrounding the teaching of English in a variety of global contexts. It is not an English language or teacher training course.
You will graduate ready to contribute academically and professionally to the rapidly changing world of international English language education.
The range of professional skills developed through the programme will ensure you are well placed to find employment all over the world, as a teacher, trainer, lecturer, instructor, administrator or director of study within language schools, colleges of further education, universities or organisations such as the British Council. Alternatively, you may wish to consider embarking on MPhil or doctoral research.
