Master of Education in Teaching English as International Language
The Master of Education (TEIL) focuses on the development of practical teaching skills, the learning of state of the art theory related to language teaching, and the writing of well researched academic articles. Many of our students publish essays in international journals. The University has strong relationships with businesses and community leaders in Thailand and abroad, leading to highly relevant qualifications that are respected nationally and internationally. The M.ED is an advanced program, intended for current teachers, those who want to teach, and also for students who want to begin or extend a career in academic research. It may also appeal to students who need profound understanding in English structure for careers outside of teaching- such as interpreters, writers, editors, journalists, embassy officers, school administrative staff, managers/owners of language schools, and community relations officers.
