Building on your previous English language teaching experience, the MA in TESOL and Applied Linguistics will allow you to move on to posts which demand more specialised subject knowledge and often more responsibility and interest. The MA opens doors.

It’ll also help you to develop the analytical and reflective skills you need to continue to develop as a professional.
