    If you want to become a language teacher, then this course will provide you with the theory and practical skills you need.

    The Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching MA is a programme which explores the practical applications of applied linguistics and is aimed at postgraduate students with or without language teaching experience. It is suitable for both native speakers and non-native speakers of English who want to develop their careers in language teaching, consultancy or research.

    Students who want to become English language teachers will have an optional opportunity to gain a professional teaching qualification (CELTA or CLTA) as part of the programme.

    What will you study?

    This course allows students to gain insights into the theory and practice of language learning and teaching. It has a strong focus on experiential learning which includes class observation, language learning and micro-teaching to encourage the linking of theory and practice.

    For those students who want to become English language teachers, there is an optional opportunity to gain a professional teaching qualification (CELTA or CLTA) as part of the programme. Students may choose this option at their own additional expense, and at an institution of their choice, but the CELTA/CLTA must be studied after the end of the second semester modules.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
