About this course


Course option

3years

Full-time with time abroad | 2018

This programme offers you an exciting opportunity to apply linguistic knowledge and related skills to the practical challenge of teaching English as a world language, whilst developing a high level of competence and communicative abilities in German. You will acquire an in depth understanding of the way that language works, from structural, social and cognitive perspectives, as well as how you can use this knowledge as an English language teacher around the world. A unique feature of this programme is that the year abroad is part of a three, rather than a four-year degree, giving you the opportunity to quickly advance your German language skills and fully immerse yourself in another culture. In this way, you will become more self-confident, independent and aware of the wider world; able to operate in another country in their language, as well as in English. As part of your programme, you will have the opportunity to take the internationally recognised CELTA* qualification (Cambridge ESOL Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). This means that you could graduate with a BA (Hons) and the professional certification you need to get a job almost anywhere in the world. The cost of the CELTA is included, so by choosing the York St John TESOL & German programme, you will avoid having to pay an extra £1,300 (approx.) on top of your standard course fees.
