What will I learn?

English is a global language with millions of people wanting to learn it. Teaching English is a truly rewarding and fulfilling career, and one which will enable you to travel widely and come into contact with other cultures. There’s an increasing demand for well-qualified TESOL professionals around the world and with our TESOL with Applied Linguistics you’ll be well-equipped to teach English to non-native speakers.

This postgraduate degree course gives you a thorough grounding in teaching methodology, classroom management, and an in-depth knowledge of lexis, grammar and phonology, and the way in which language is learned. It’ll also help you to develop the analytical and reflective skills you need to continue to develop as a professional.

Why study with us

  • You have the choice between the face-to-face full-time course at the Preston campus, taking one year or the part-time route via distance mode, taking at least 3 years. The flexibility can match your current needs and available time for study.
  • You will be studying with other students who also already have teaching experience, allowing you to share experience, learn from each other and build a professional network.
  • You’ll work in small groups of British and international students, so you’ll really get to know each other and your tutors, allowing you to reach your potential.
