Institution University of Brighton View institution profile
Department School of Humanities and Social Science
Study type Taught


The MA TESOL is designed to help you develop professionally as an English language teacher in the global ELT context. It is suitable for whichever stage of career you find yourself. A flexible structure means that you can choose to follow your interests, whether they be digital resources, becoming a teacher trainer, or the development of materials and resources.

Different pathways within TESOL will provide development opportunities for you whether you are an experienced language teacher or at the beginning your career – helping enhance your employability.

On the course you will apply theory to practice through the experience of teaching, observation and reflection. All learning is supported by digital resources and a superb online library provision, as well as systematic support for academic writing and study skills. Our course tutors are extremely experienced in English language teaching, teacher education and the use of digital media for language teaching.

You will have the option to add on a teaching assessment module to gain an initial TEFL qualification (TEFL-I) or a Diploma-level qualification (TEFL-Q), depending on the amount of teaching experience you have.

You may be coming to the MA after completing our Diploma in TESOL. Graduates from this course (or any equivalent) will be offered credit to set against study for the MA TESOL, saving you time and money.

Academic support We give extra support to TESOL students whose first language is not English, providing a variety of pre-sessional language programmes for students who want to improve their language skills before starting their degree.

We also organise a regular writing group for our international students, led by an experienced English for Academic Study tutor. Watch our video to find out more about how the writing group could benefit you.
