What will I learn?


Our postgraduate degree in Management and English Language Teaching is for current and prospective English language teachers who see themselves as potential managers of language teaching departments or schools. This Masters course is one of only a few such degrees in the UK.

During this Masters course, you’ll learn the key knowledge and skills needed to be a professional teacher of English as a foreign language. In addition, you’ll develop the competencies to manage in a multicultural working environment, through modules taught by the internationally renowned University of Stirling Management School. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.

Course objectives

The course aims to give you a strong foundation in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and a focus on management issues within the subject.

Postgraduate education at the University goes beyond text books and lecture rooms, we also focus on your personal and professional development.

The University of Stirling Management School’s unique Flying Start Leadership programme equips you with the awareness, knowledge and techniques essential for building a successful career. These range from practical skills, like effective public speaking, to developing ways to work under pressure in difficult situations and manage conflict.
