Postgraduate degree in Management and English Language Teaching is for current and prospective English language teachers who see themselves as potential managers of language teaching departments or schools. This Masters course is one of only a few such degrees in the UK.

During this Masters course, you’ll learn the key knowledge and skills needed to be a professional teacher of English as a foreign language. In addition, you’ll develop the competencies to manage in a multicultural working environment, through modules taught by the internationally renowned University of Stirling Management School.

This course is for novice and experienced teachers and focus on both, balancing theory and practice, and taking an innovative approach to teaching which includes special support for non-native speakers of English.

Novice teachers (those with less than two years’ experience) get a thorough grounding in the theory and research underlying English language teaching and also in teaching methodology. Experienced teachers who plan to move into a management position will benefit from a range of module choices. Teaching is combined with input on management skills relevant to the multicultural working environments that are commonly experienced in language teaching today. The content of your course will vary to suit your experience, whatever your starting point.

Graduates with this unique combination of practical language teaching and professional management skills are highly sought after. You’ll graduate with the proven skills and training you need to successfully manage people and run a commercial language school or language teaching department in this flourishing international sector. You could also go on to study for a PhD.

This degree suits both experienced teachers who wish to develop management skills and novice teachers who want a mix of training in English language teaching and management skills.
