Degree and/or experience
The MA is usually open to second language teachers with more than two years of teaching experience. Places are normally given to those who have a good first degree (BA or BSc), and a high standard of spoken and written English. It is also an advantage to have some form of initial teaching qualification.
Credit towards the MA (up to 60 credits) can be given to applicants who have completed our own Diploma in TESOL (level 7), or who have completed an equivalent Diploma in TESOL (such as the DELTA or Trinity Diploma in TESOL).
For non-native speakers of English
IELTS test score of 6.5 with no individual components under 6, or equivalent, e.g. confirmed evidence of prior undergraduate / postgraduate study in the medium of English.
International students whose language skills do not match the IELTS scores set out here should consider applying for this course through the Extended Masters programme at the university's Language Institute.
