    Presentación

    This Teaching English as a Foreign Language programme (TEFL, also known as TESOL in some countries) based in the School of Education, offers a unique opportunity to study for a qualification which links teaching English to wider issues of school-based education.

    The modules will provide you with a strong grounding in theoretical literature as well as appropriate classroom methodology, course design and an introduction to the key research tools. The programme is designed to be practical and you will have opportunities to create bespoke teaching and learning materials as well as visit British schools to observe classroom teaching.

    BIA provides free English language services to international students who are currently studying on undergraduate or postgraduate courses at the University of Birmingham.

    There are 2 core Education Modules.

    There are also several optional modules.

    Optional Modules

    Students may choose one optional module from the options offered across the School, for example:

    Curriculum Design in Global Contexts
    Citizenship, Human Rights and the Environment
    Personal and Professional Skills for Education Management
    Leadership for School Improvement
    Education as an International Issue
    Curriculum and Approaches for Pupils with Autism
    The modules listed on our website may occasionally be subject to change. For example, as you will appreciate, key members of staff may leave the University and this might necessitate a review of the modules that are offered. Where a module is no longer available, we will let you know as soon as we can and help you make other choices.

    Dissertation

    In the School of Education, the ´Practioner Inquiry in Education´ module prepares the ground for this choice. This module is completed in the first semester and the MA programme is designed to get you to make an early choice and help with planning. This means you have more time to read around topic and organise data collection. Many overseas students return to their home country to collect data. Others stay in UK and find an suitable research focus here. The TEFL team will help you make this choice. Each student has an individual supervisor who is there to offer advice and support along the way.

    The actual dissertation is 15,000 words long. It usually contains a description of the research or teaching context, a section on research methodology, a literature review, analysis and discussion, as well as evaluation. Although it sounds like a large number of words, the main problem students usually have is cutting their work down to the word limit! Students have nearly six months (between April and September) to complete the research and writing.

    Salidas profesionales

    Our graduates typically find work as EFL teachers in schools and universities in countries around the world, return to their English teaching jobs in their home countries, are promoted to more senior roles within their teaching contexts, or pursue a research qualification (usually a PhD degree). Graduates from the MA Education TEFL are consistently successful in winning prestigious PhD scholarships and awards and present their MA TEFL work at international conferences and in publications.
