Careers and skills
This Applied Linguistics for English Language Teaching course from University of York is an ideal grounding for postgraduate students looking to go on to further study such as PhD or for a career in the education sector.
Many of our graduates become English language teachers all around the world, in private language schools, state schools, universities and other organisations requiring English language instruction. Others find employment opportunities in areas of course and syllabus design, and materials writing in large and small scale publishing houses.
Our postgraduate courses can be used to complement teacher training/development programmes and voluntary or paid roles which focus on the more practical elements of teaching. However, other than our PGCE, our courses are not teacher training programmes in themselves.
