Master of Professional Language Studies (Language Teaching)

June 7 2019

This programme is aimed at teachers who have a preliminary qualification and experience in language teaching. Students are often experienced teachers of ESOL or EFL, te reo, sign language or other languages. Classes are in the late afternoon/early evening to fit around work hours.

You study a range of core and elective topics and then complete a reflective practice project where you identify an area of teaching that you would like to investigate in more depth. You critically review the literature and develop a theory of teaching in this area. In the classroom you apply the theory through a number of teaching events and reflect on your practice.

The scholarship for this course is available for 1.5 years of full or part-time study.

It’s the perfect opportunity to combine practical classroom teaching with a sound knowledge of theory.

  • Flexible class times fit around working hours
  • Investigate key issues and topics in language teaching
  • Apply theory in the classroom and reflect on practice
