    Structure and content

    This professional master's qualification combines the development of advanced academic knowledge with practical language teaching skills.

    You study a range of core and elective topics and then complete a reflective practice project where you identify an area of teaching that you would like to investigate in more depth.

    You critically review the literature and develop a theory of teaching in this area of focus. In the classroom you apply the theory through a number of teaching events, and reflection on your teaching.

    Key skills practiced in this programme include:

    • Critical thinking, reading and discussing
    • Evaluating strategies for effective language teaching and learning
    • Developing a personal theory of teaching
    • Critical reflection on own classroom practice
    • Devising a plan for own development as a teacher arising out of critical reflection.

    The development of these skills is relevant to your future careers as they equip you to continue your own professional development once the course of study is finished.

    Graduates of the programme have explored areas such as teaching vocabulary through reading, teaching spoken language through using authentic texts and intercultural language teaching.
