Study type Taught


Develop your teaching practice with our MA TESOL course, based on our stunning campus in the heritage city of Bath.

  • One of the few TESOL courses in the UK that incorporates a teaching placement.

  • Designed for both experienced teachers and those with little or no teaching experience.

  • Blends the theory of language and linguistics teaching with practical skills development.

Based at our beautiful Newton Park campus, this TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) course is for those who wish to teach English as a second or foreign language. We aim to develop confident and well-informed language teaching practitioners who are capable of designing and teaching comprehensive language programmes. You’ll extend your knowledge base by engaging in independent research into your own practice and setting.

We recognise the value of professional, cultural and life experiences, which you’ll develop and explore during the programme. This will enhance your professional knowledge and understanding through reflection, aided by theoretical input and practical application.

Context specific professional development is an important element in the MA TESOL. We prepare you to return to your previous work context or even move to a new one, with an adaptable knowledge base for that particular setting.


Bath Spa University is about more than studying. It’s about getting stuck in: thinking, making and doing. About bumping into friends on campus, embracing challenges and genuinely caring. We push boundaries and ourselves. If that sounds good to you, you’ll fit in well.
