Student Destinations

The MA offers opportunities for career advancement both in the UK and abroad. Most of the graduates can find employment after completion of the MA, some returning to more senior positions in their previous employment while others can move into new areas such as school management or language advisory work. Some of our students continue with us to study at doctoral level.

Many of our current and former students secured English language teaching jobs at schools and colleges in the UK, Switzerland, Poland and Saudi Arabia. A couple of them are doing or have already finished their PhDs with us at London Metropolitan University.
