The English Language Teaching (Distance Learning) course of London Metropolitan University is designed for teachers and language professionals as well as those with no teaching experience. The course ensures you develop new ways of thinking and talking about English language and English language teaching, and learning across different social and educational contexts.
The English Language Teaching MA is a distance learning course, one of the first in London, offering you flexibility to suit your commitments and requirements. Based on the latest trends and findings in the subject areas, you'll explore theoretical and practical aspects of English language learning and teaching.
The focus on intercultural issues will develop new ways of thinking and talking about language and language teaching across different linguistic, sociolinguistic and educational contexts. The applied nature of the course will enhance your confidence and employability.
After the course
The MA offers opportunities for career advancement both in the UK and abroad. Most of the graduates can find employment after completion of the MA, some returning to more senior positions in their previous employment while others can move into new areas such as school management or language advisory work. Some of our students continue with us to study at doctoral level.
