MA in TESOL with Translation Studies

About the course

The MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) with Translation Studies is designed for language graduates, ideally with either a teaching qualification or some teaching experience, who want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of English and how to teach it, but who are also interested in translation theories and practice.

Students have the opportunity to examine the theory, research and practical aspects of language teaching through observation, reflection and practice, as well as examining from a practical and theoretical perspective the nature and process of translation. There is also an opportunity to explore the use of translation technologies or focus on innovation in language learning and teaching.

The MA/Diploma in TESOL with Translation Studies is offered as a one-year full-time programme (course code 882619) and as a two-year part-time programme (course code 882622). The predominant mode of examination on this programme is by coursework and continuous assessment.
