About

The popular Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) (Distance Learning) programme from University of Birmingham is designed for practising teachers of English to speakers of other languages. We explore different approaches to the teaching and learning of English and study the close relationship between language teaching theory and practice.

Overview

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) (Distance Learning) programme from University of Birmingham encourages you to use the concepts and theories that you encounter during your course of study in your own classroom.

It is a set of interactive course materials to complete in part-time, self-study mode over a period of at least 30 months.

Why study this course?

  • Flexibility – we have multiple start dates throughout the year so you have the option of choosing when to commence your studies with us. You can study at home, in your own time and at your own pace, so you can combine achieving a qualification with other commitments. You also have the benefit of developing your career without having to leave employment.
  • Study from anywhere in the world - You can access the online course material from anywhere in the world, so if you change jobs or even move countries, it is possible to continue your studies.
  • Real life application – you can begin to apply new knowledge and insights to your working life whilst you are still studying. Many students choose to tackle work-related topics in their dissertations.
  • Opportunity to attend our summer school – you will be able to attend one of our summer schools in Birmingham, Japan or Korea to learn more about the discipline and meet with academics and other students on the programme. We also run training events such as inductions and workshops for our students in some Asian countries.

We usually ask for a good Honours degree in a relevant subject, or overseas equivalent. However, when considering your application, we look at your qualifications and work experience as well as your academic credentials. If your first degree is in an unrelated subject but you have relevant professional experience you may well be eligible for the course. For this reason, it is important to provide details of any current and/or previous employment in your application; it is always helpful to include a current CV but please complete the relevant sections of the application form as well.
