The University of Reading has been known for decades as a centre of excellence in English Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics. Our postgraduate programmes have more than 1500 graduates in over 40 countries, many of whom have gone on to become well-known teachers and scholars whose work has come to define the field of English Language Studies.
A lot of students prefer to pursue their higher learning degree in subjects like English language teaching due to the interesting topics covered in the course as well as their real-world applications. However, before a person can claim to be an expert on the subject, they must submit a thesis paper that tests their knowledge regarding what they have learnt over the duration of the course and how they are planning to implement the same in improving the scope of the topics.
