Description

University of Liverpool has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

OverviewThis is the ideal programme if you'd like to teach English as a foreign language or are already doing so but would like more training.More particularly, the programme aims:

  • To make you aware of theoretical issues in language teaching and learning
  • To develop your understanding of current, practical classroom methodology
  • To introduce you to the latest approaches to language analysis
  • To help you understand the connections between theory and practice.
Our academic staff have extensive experience of teaching internationally and working on projects and have active research interests and publications. Student feedback consistently indicates how much they appreciate our tutors' friendly and patient support as well as their excellent academic and professional abilities.Social activitiesAs part of the programme, we arrange regular social outings for students and staff. The aim of such visits is to enable us to get to know each other in an informal setting and to visit local places of interest. We endeavour to ensure that each visit is free of charge to maximise participation.Entry requirementsAll applicants must have reached a minimum required standard of English language and are required to provide evidence of this. Qualifications accepted by the University can be found on our International webpages. Please see www.liv.ac.uk/international for English Language requirements specific to your country.If you meet the academic requirements of the course but do not have the required level of English Language, it is possible for you to come and study at the University on one of our Pre-sessional EAP programmes. Please see the English Language Centre website for further information about these programmes; www.liv.ac.uk/english-language-centre/pre-sessional-eap.If you require additional English Language training during your study, the University is able to provide tuition and arrange IELTS tests through its English Language Centre, details of which are available at www.liverpool.ac.uk/english-language-centre.For entry to our master's programmes a good 2:1 class Bachelors degree in English studies or a similar subject is required.Applicants will have a first degree, usually in English, Linguistics or Education (but we will consider candidates who have studied other subjects).Teachers with teaching experience (more than one year full-time) are not normally eligible for this MA: instead they should apply for the MA in Applied Linguistics.Career prospectsThe independence of study, clarity of expression and management of time demanded by all our taught programmes equip the successful graduate with the skills and knowledge base required for further academic study and research in English and other areas. However, many graduates choose to enter careers such as teaching, publishing and journalism, or to work in the business sector, often in human resources, administration, marketing or sales.Successful alumni have gone on to teach English at elementary, secondary and tertiary levels in schools around the globe. A significant number of MA graduates have also continued their studies to PhD level.
