MA Applied Linguistics with TESOL
Join staff and students from around the world in the School of English. The variety of fresh perspectives you’ll find here will make your masters a unique experience.
In our taught course we include a mix of core and optional modules. In addition, you’ll research your own interests in an extended dissertation.
You’ll attend lectures, seminars and tutorials. During your dissertation you’ll be supervised by one of our academic staff, who’ll provide you with guidance on your topic and methodology. You will have access to a dedicated computer room for students.
Assessment is by coursework assignments and a dissertation.
Course content: Course content refers to academic year 2017/18. The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
Our campus and how we use it: We timetable teaching across the whole of our campus, the details of which can be found on our campus map. Teaching may take place in a student’s home department, but may also be timetabled to take place within other departments or central teaching space.
A minimum of a 2:1 honours degree (GPA 3.0) in English literature, language, linguistics, or a related discipline (e.g. history, philosophy, modern languages) is usually required. Find out more about EU and international student entry requirements.
English language requirements:
For applicants whose first language is not English, IELTS is the preferred test of language. You need an overall IELTS grade of 7.0, with a minimum 6.5 in writing, and a minimum of 6.0 in all the component tests. Further information can be found here.
