In this Section:
The Language Education Academic Group at the School of Education is nationally and internationally recognised for its range of teaching, research, knowledge transfer and consultancy work in TESOL, ELT, EFL, ESOL, EAL, Modern Foreign Languages, and Applied Linguistics.
We lead and contribute to BA, MA, PGCE, EdD and PhD programs. We provide high quality teaching and supervision, leading towards internationally recognised and prestigious qualifications, in a friendly and supportive environment.
We conduct our research through our specialist research centre.
We are one of the largest academic groups for Language Education in the UK. As education practitioners, we have a wide range of experience of teaching and teacher education work in many contexts in the UK and around the world, and as researchers, we have a broad range of expertise across the discipline.
The School of Education provides a stimulating, friendly and nurturing environment for doctoral students.
Within the School, the Language Education Academic Group provides excellent doctoral supervision in the wide range of areas covered by the team’s expertise.
Our research students benefit from regular meetings with two supervisors and receive further support for their work through a programme of seminars and workshops.
All doctoral students are also given research methods training and have the opportunity to talk about their own research at our annual research students’ conference.
Overall, through these activities we seek to enable research students to excel and to be an integral part of the Language Education team at Leeds.
