This Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching programme 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 language teachers around the world: in private language schools, state schools, and universities. Others find employment opportunities in course and syllabus design, or writing in publishing houses.
