We offer multiple graduate courses in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

TESOL graduate programmes

Our MA and GradDip TESOL programmes are designed to provide teachers with practical knowledge and skills they can immediately apply to their teaching practice.

Students will see a difference in how they approach their teaching and in the value they give to their students. Most importantly, our programmes work around typical language school timetables, which means students have the opportunity to continue teaching while undertaking the TESOL courses.

If you are already a professional in the TESOL field with at least one year teaching experience, you should consider our MA or Grad Dip in TESOL here.

If you are just beginning your career teaching English to speakers of other languages, you should consider our MA Pre-Service in TESOL here.

The programme is structured to fit the needs of teachers. Currently teaching in Ireland, I find the course practical and applicable to my teaching career.

A major takeaway was the emphasis on being a reflective practitioner—through collaboration, reflection, and research, I will continue to learn far beyond it.
