Study Details

MA 1 year Full-time

***To be eligible for this MA, you must have the equivalent of at least one year's teaching experience by the time the course starts. If you will have less than this, please consider applying for the MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.***

The Department of Education, in collaboration with the Centre for English Language Teaching, offers a one-year (12-month) taught full-time MA in Applied Linguistics for English Language Teaching (MAALELT).

MAALELT is for those who are interested in pursuing an MA relating to TESOL and who will have the equivalent of at least one year's full-time English teaching experience by the time the course starts. This experience of teaching can be with any age of learner, and any stages of learning and should normally have been undertaken after you have obtained your first degree.

Entry Requirements

Applicants require a UK 2:1 or international equivalent in a relevant subject. Applicants' first degree should be in a related subject, such as language, linguistics or education, with a substantial component of English. Applicants should also have the equivalent of at least one year's full-time English teaching experience by the time the course starts; this experience of teaching can be with any age of learner, and any stages of learning. This teaching experience is normally undertaken after you have obtained your first degree. Teacher training internships, casual private tutoring and holiday camps are not normally sufficient.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
