    The MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at the University of Hertfordshire is a one year programme for graduates in English, with little or no teaching experience who want an initial preparation course in English Language Teaching at post-graduate level.

    The programme gives an in-depth introduction to the teaching of English and provides a strong practical foundation for future development. A practical teaching element is a central feature of the programme; students will participate in practice teaching sessions throughout their study period. It is a twelve month full-time programme.

    The two taught semesters (Semester A & B) are examined by coursework and lead to a Post-Graduate Diploma in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. These are followed by a dissertation in Semester C (June - September), successful completion of which will lead to an MA (TESOL).

    The programme will cover the following areas:

    * A practical introduction to the teaching of English
    * A teaching and learning-focused study of the English Language, including grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, texts, and genre
    * Study of the extent and range of uses of English
    * Theoretical insights into how languages are learned
    * Methods of English language teaching and practical teaching sessions including needs analysis, syllabus design and materials production and evaluation, incorporating use of technology and testing
    * Research methods - preparation for research and dissertation
    * Dissertation - which will involve some collection and analysis of data

    Careers
    Graduates of the programme will be qualified for jobs teaching English at a range of levels in most countries of the world. They will be able to take on positions of responsibility at course design, and course management levels.

    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.

English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
