Course Information

Gain the skills to teach English to speakers of other languages and put your learning into practice with a teaching placement.

Whether you are a qualified teacher or have no previous teaching experience, the MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at Ulster is designed to enhance your teaching and communication skills and explore how people from different cultures learn languages.

Ulster’s TESOL programme is one of few master's level TESOL courses in the UK which combines theory with a teaching practice placement.

You will have the opportunity to complete a placement in our partner schools in Northern Ireland or in Gyor, Hungary*, where you will teach English to non-native speakers (subject to a minimum of 8 students wishing to go to Hungary).

Graduates of this programme have gained work as English language teachers in private language schools, further education colleges, universities and schools in the UK, Ireland and in many countries all over the world. Some have progressed to work in EAL related fidleds, others to doctoral study whilst others have got jobs as on-line English language teachers. Students have gone on to work in teaching related areas: for example, developers of online English language teaching materials; whilst some of the students use their qualification to work for charities abroad in developing countries.

Shelley Wright explains the benefits of the TESOL programme:

‘I'm in my fourth year working as a lecturer at Kanda University of international Studies in Chiba Japan. It's an amazing job which hired me right after I graduated. We get over three months holiday per year and there are lots of opportunities for professional development. There's over 60 English lecturers here so that adds to the sense of community and the students are angels. During the interview process, my boss was impressed by the placement in Hungary that you sent us on!'
