About this course

Our BA (Hons) in Education Studies and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the ideal programme for students who wish to pursue a career in education and have an interest in language and the language learning and teaching process. This exciting degree is designed to broaden your ideas and experiences of education, learners, and educational settings, and allows you to keep your options open to make informed choices about your future employment opportunities once you graduate.

We integrate the theory and practice of education, language learning and teaching to equip you with the academic, vocational, and professional skills and knowledge to start you on your education career path in teaching or non-teaching roles, or prepare you for entry to teacher training programmes to become a qualified teacher, such as a PGCE. Settings in which you gain practical experience may include those at primary, secondary and tertiary levels. You may also work with specific groups of learners, such as pupils who are learning English as an additional language (EAL).

On completion of the degree, you will have engaged with topics that will develop your communication skills, your knowledge of how language is used and perceived, how learners learn, and how educators can tailor teaching and resources to include a diverse range of learners.
