Develop your English teaching - and build specialist knowledge to progress your career.
This course will take your English language teaching to the next level. You’ll master the pedagogical theory behind key teaching approaches. You’ll explore methodologies and master different techniques. You’ll examine:
- what motivates learners
- how we learn differently
- language-learning as a discipline
You might scrutinise the differences between didactic and communicative teaching approaches. Or you might examine how language changes in different contexts.
You’ll build an expansive teaching toolkit. And you’ll be able to identify the right teaching methods - for any learner, in every situation. You’ll also be able to articulate the theory behind your approaches - to school leaders and parents. And your classes will become more creative and motivating - making a real difference to your students.
You’ll graduate with a recognised qualification that will help you meaningfully progress your career.

Questions about fees?
Fees quoted are for the first year only. If you are studying a course that lasts longer than one year, your fees will increase each year.
The following factors will be taken into account by the University when it is setting the annual fees: inflationary measures such as the retail price indices, projected increases in University costs, changes in the level of funding received from Government sources, admissions statistics and access considerations including the availability of student support.
How and when to pay
Tuition fee instalments for the semester are due by the Monday of week 1 of each semester. Students are not liable for full fees for that semester if they leave before week 4. If the leaving date is after week 4, full fees for the semester are payable.

Learning and assessment
On the course, you’ll explore and master the key approaches in English Language Teaching. You’ll build your versatility and resilience as a language teacher - and you’ll professionalise your practice.
You’ll also have the option to specialise in:
- multilingual learners
- English Language Teaching resources
- English for specific purposes
You’ll join a close-knit community of professional English language teachers. You’ll share ideas and learn from each other as you study. And you’ll work closely with expert English language researchers, who can support you with your particular interests.
The School of Education, Humanities and Languages is a thriving centre for educational research and teacher professional development. Students on master's level programmes therefore join a large research community comprising researchers at all levels of higher education study.
We hold two major research conferences each year - the School of Education Research Conference and the EdD Colloquium. All students are invited to attend our annual Research Seminar Series (which attracts both internal and external speakers). We also organise a number of conferences, lectures, seminars and debates, some of which have an international reach.
The School’s six research groups exist to encourage engagement in research, publication, conference presentations, seminars and workshops:
- Inclusion and Wellbeing
- Policy, Partnership and Leadership
- STEAM pedagogy and learning
- Humanistic Perspectives on Education
- Early Years
- Applied Linguistics
After you graduate
You’ll graduate with a recognised qualification that will set you apart from other candidates - and attest to your talents as a professional educator.
You’ll be confident in any classroom. You’ll be equipped with teaching strategies to support any language learner. And you’ll be ready to step into a more senior position, or progress your career.
You might move into a management position at a private language school. You might progress to a Head of English role in an international school. You might start teaching English at university-level. Or, if you’re looking to return to the UK, you’ll be well-placed to secure a professional teaching role back home.
"Here at Brookes, I discuss a lot and I’m actually enjoying that because it really helps me to deepen the understanding of the topic I’m studying and it’s really interesting to share ideas with the others. It’s a great way to get new insights that you’d never think of on your own"Read more about Yukari
