Developed and delivered collaboratively by the University of Southampton and the British Council, it offers postgraduate level study in key areas of current theory and practice in Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching.

And please note that if you are a fully participating learner in Understanding Language: Learning and Teaching, you will be eligible to apply for a scholarship to cover part of the MA fees.
