    Programme Description

    The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

    The Department of Language and Linguistics was ranked fourth in the UK following the last RAE and is one of the largest and most prestigious departments of its kind in the UK.

    This course focuses on the teaching, learning and use of English for academic and occupational purposes. English is now the most widely used language for international communication in the areas of business, science, medicine and education and consequently, many teachers are required to teach adults, either preparing for university study in the medium of English or using English for work-related purposes.

    This course targets key topics in this area such as teaching EAP, teaching ESP, needs analysis, materials design and evaluation, genre analysis and academic writing.
