Master of Science by Coursework in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching (Part-time)

  1. The Course shall be under the supervision of the Academic Committee of the Department of Education.
  2. Candidates will be expected to participate in a course of instruction for six terms part-time, including a one-week induction session and a series of online lectures and seminars.
  3. Candidates will take six one term papers. Each of the six papers will be assessed by coursework as set out in the Course Handbook.
  4. In each of the two years, candidates will take three summatively assessed modules, two in Michaelmas Term and one module in Hilary Term.
  5. Candidates who successfully complete the six summatively assessed modules, and who choose not to continue with their programme of study, may be awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching.
  6. Candidates are required to submit a dissertation of between 15,000 and 20,000 words by no later than noon on the second Thursday in August.
  7. All assessments must be submitted using the University approved online submission system. Technical information on the requirements for online submissions is provided in the Course Handbook.  
  8. If a candidate receives a failing mark for any of the summative assessments, they may resubmit the assessment on one further occasion, either by a date for resubmission which will be published by the Course Director when the results are released, and will be no sooner than 6 weeks from the release of the results, or in the corresponding term of the following year when assessments take place. If a candidate fails the dissertation, they may resubmit the dissertation one further time on the next occasion when this is examined, or at an earlier date as agreed with the Course Director. Candidates who fail any modules or the dissertation at the first attempt cannot normally be awarded more than 50 at resubmission.
  9. If a failing mark is received on the dissertation, either at the time of the original submission or upon re-sit and a passing mark has been received for the six summatively assessed modules, the student may apply to exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching.
