Entry Requirements

The normal entry requirement for the TESOL programme is one year's relevant experience plus a good, relevant degree. Exemption from the certificate stage may be obtained if you have an UCLES or Trinity College diploma in foreign language teaching, or a PGCE in modern languages.

The Certificate and Diploma must each be passed before continuation to the next stage. The Advanced Diploma in TESOL may be obtained by those who pass the diploma stage with a lower grade than that required to continue to the masters stage.

You will be given the opportunity to take the Trinity College Licentiate Diploma in TESOL at the end of the diploma stage (full-time) or at the end of the first year (part-time). (Half the work required for the Diploma TESOL is required for this qualification.)

TESOL Qualified Status (TQS) may be obtained if you successfully complete the teaching practice element of the programme. This will be governed by BATQI (British Association of TESOL Qualifying Institutions) regulations.

Distance MA TESOL

The MA TESOL is also offered by distance mode to special groups of teachers.
