Teesside University: Education (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages)

InstitutionTeesside University
Department Education, Early Childhood and Youth
Study type Taught


Our MA in Education (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) - MA in Education (TESOL) - is designed for experienced TESOL professionals who already have a Level 6 qualification and at least one-year, full-time experience of teaching English as a foreign or second language in any context.

Applicants with a Cambridge University Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) and sufficient English teaching experience will also be considered.

This route is an opportunity for you to explore an aspect of TESOL relevant to your interests and career development aspirations. You reflect upon your own practice, identify areas of professional relevance and explore possible approaches to TESOL. You are encouraged to share your experiences and perspectives on aspects of educational practice. Learning is shared with students on other MA in Education routes, who come from a variety of educational settings and backgrounds. This gives you the opportunity to develop a systematic and critical understanding not only of TESOL, but also of the breadth and depth of knowledge in educational research and practice. Therefore, students can discuss and explore themes that are particularly relevant to TESOL, and develop a sense of belonging to the whole MA in Education cohort. Peer-led discussions on the range of research and practice areas covered in sessions provide the opportunity for inter-professional discussion and debate, and to consider relevant issues from the perspectives of other professional educational groups which in turn supports you to integrate and synthesise a diverse range of knowledge. You are encouraged to consider potential progression beyond completion of the MA in Education (TESOL), for example to doctoral studies.
