Mapping the masters market
- Created: Thursday, 09 February 2017 13:28
A team of researchers at the University of Stirling has set out to take the pulse of the ELT masters provision in the UK, Claudia Civinini writes. With our experience in compiling huge lists of masters, it doesn’t come as a surprise that such research would attract our attention. In a study funded by the British Council, the team has indexed UK ELT masters provision and elicited students’ opinions on a range of topics related to their programmes. As well as practical guidance for providers and recruiters, the team hopes to develop a theoretical understanding of the student experience, which has been lacking to date for Tesol students.
