Do you want to gain specialised knowledge and skills in English language teaching and learning?

The Master of TESOL helps you understand the connections between theory and practice, and the importance of developing strong principles of practice in English language teaching and learning. You will develop an expert understanding of the core principles of language teaching and learning.
You will engage with contemporary theory and practice for additional language acquisition and advanced understanding of, and skills associated with:
- the role of social and cultural contexts in language learning
- a range of communicative approaches to teaching, learning and assessment and planning for teaching in various TESOL contexts
- the evaluation, analysis and design of assessment tasks
- the development and maintenance of bilingualism and biliteracy in formal learning environments
- English language education in local and global contexts
- transcultural and intercultural learning, communication and mobility, including in online learning settings
- the use of digital technologies to support learning.
A flexible course delivery allows you to continue working while completing the course. You can choose to engage via a fully online offering, or to combine this with attendance at face-to-face workshops if you are able and interested.
Graduates of the Master of TESOL are prepared as language teachers of TESOL who can operate with confidence in a changing and increasingly 'internationalised' world.
