Suitable for people from a wide variety of backgrounds, our MA Applied Linguistics and TESOL offers a combination of the theoretical and practical aspects of language learning and teaching. The courses focus strongly on how to apply the theory in the classroom, helping to provide an in-depth understanding of current theories around language systems and how languages are taught and learned.
On campus, all teaching takes place in the evening, enabling you to pursue part-time
employment during the day. Cambridge has an abundance of language schools,
making it comparatively easy for those wishing to gain practical experience in
language teaching to find part-time employment in this sector.
Graduates from this degree work in a wide variety of language-learning and teaching-related professions. These include: teaching English or other languages to non-native speakers in both the UK and abroad; curriculum, test and materials development; and language policy.
You would usually need a good/ 2:1 honours degree classification (or equivalent) in languages, linguistics, education, psychology, sociology or other related area and/or
relevant professional experience in order to gain entry to this degree.
